Asian Cucumber Salad with Ginger, Garlic, Chillies and Soy
This is a recipe from Melissa Clark, one of my favourite cooks (have I mentioned that?!) And this cucumber salad says everything about why I am quite so obsessed with her recipes ..it is so, so delicious! There is so much going on here: cool, fresh, fleshy cucumber, bold, tangy and aromatic ginger, chillies and garlic. And it's a time-poor chef's dream: super speedy and easy to do, and, it can be made 4 hours ahead of time and kept in the fridge! All your adoring guests will see is serenity and calm as you float out this corker of a salad.
