Lebanese cucumbers with ginger and mint

Healthy salad recipes

Quick to make and delicious as a side dish to accompany a fish dish.


  • 5 Lebanese cucumbers
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp ginger juice
  • 5 mint leaves, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp toasted, 
hulled sesame seeds


Slice the cucumbers in half lengthways and then in bite-size wedges. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with the salt; this will draw moisture from them. Leave 15 minutes to two hours.

Grate peeled ginger using a fine grater. Squeeze the juice from the grated ginger and add the juice to the cucumbers. Add the remaining ingredients and toss well. Serve.
