Super quick cucumber pickle

Super quick cucumber pickle


  1. First place the salt, pepper, sugar and vinegar in a bowl and give it a good stir.
  2. Now halve your cucumbers lengthways and using a teaspoon scoop out the seeds. These make your pickle sad and watery.
  3. Now dice the cucumber, onion and chilli in the smallest, neatest cubes you can manage. Pop the radio on and listen to something calming while you dice. I recommend the Archers.
  4. Pop that in with the sugar, vinegar mix and toss about a bit.
  5. Slice the chives and add those, and pick all the leaves off the mint stalks and shred those finely and mix in.
  6. Stir and leave to stand for a while whilst you cook your burgers or whatever other delight you've chosen to accompany it.

Recipe Notes

  • You could add other vegetables in like peppers or mooli.
  • Also a fruit such as mango or pineapple would be welcome.
  • Keeps well for a couple of days in a sealed jar or tub.
