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

    1. Slice cucumber in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a teaspoon. Slice cucumber thinly. Place in a bowl, sprinkle with salt and let stand 30 minutes. Drain, pat dry. Place cucumber, spring onions and radishes in a large bowl.

    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.
