This Mediterranean dish has a deliciously smoky and nutty taste and a creamy texture. Serve it with wedges of warm pita bread.

cook's tip

The process of salting cucumbers removes some of the liquid so that the flavour of a dressing is not heavily diluted. Also, it helps to remove any bitter taste that the cucumbers may have.
