German cooking in Treasure Island, Cucumber salad with a twist
I love to cook and people always want my “recipe” well, I do not have recipes. Usually I do not even know what I cook till I get to the store, look around and buy what looks appealing. So, the other day I saw cucumbers and I LOVE cucumber salad in all different forms. Today we will add Mango to the mix. It takes about 10 minutes to make a salad for 4 people and it is really easy and no big mess to clean up.
Please do not expect the exact measurements or exact time or exact degrees in my recipes. Cooking is all about being creative and unique, I will give you the basic and you make it your own fabulous creation.
Make sure you have 2 or 3 cucumbers, a Mango, fresh ginger, Salt, Pepper, Sugar, Oil, Dill, White Vinegar maybe a tomato and some chives.
Peel and slice the cucumber, whatever sickness you prefer add about ½ of a Mango. A few table spoon of oil and vinegar a little bit of pepper, salt and dill and don’t be shy on the sugar. Slice and dice (very fine) about of teaspoon of fresh ginger mix it all together and let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes, taste one last time, make adjustments and serve.
