  4. Peel cucumber then quarter longways and cut into small pieces.
  5. Mix the vinegar, oil and lemon juice together to make the dressing.

  7. Sprinkle with the remaining dressing.

Cooking Beans

To cook beans to perfection bring them to the boil and as soon as they turn that lovely bright green colour take them off the stove but leave them in the water; covered until they are tender.
