Gok Wan’s Spicy Cucumber Salad

Cucumber & Carrot Salad

This spicy salad is a treat for the taste buds, it literally sings! Taken from Gok Wan’s book “Gok Cooks Chinese”, which I thoroughly recommend, it has reawakened my love of Chinese food which had been diminished by years of sad, gloopy, MSG laden offerings from restaurants and takeaways.

Ingredients: (serves 4)

1 cucumber roughly peeled and sliced with a vegetable peeler

1 clove of garlic, chopped

1/2 fresh red chilli, chopped, seeds removed (or leave for a very spicy salad!)

2 spring onions, finely sliced

3 tbsps rice vinegar

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp fish sauce

1 tsp light soy sauce

1 tsp caster sugar

a pinch of salt

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl (I like to add some sliced carrot for more texture) and leave to sit for 2 mins before serving. This salad really packs a zingy punch, the flavours are incredible!
