Tip

Want to get ahead?
You can make this mint relish the day before - simply keep it chilled until ready to serve.

Method

  1. Peel the cucumber and coarsely grate the sides, discarding the seeds. Season generously with salt. Tip into a colander or sieve and leave for 10 mins to drain, then squeeze out as much liquid as you can and tip into a bowl.

  2. Tip the remaining ingredients into a mini chopper or food processor and blitz. Pour the sauce over the cucumber and stir, then chill until needed. Serve scattered with mint.
