Madhouse recipe : Creamy Cucumber & Tomato Salad


Somehow, I ended up with two and half cucumbers in the fridge so I needed to come up with a recipe to use some up. This is basically a twist on raita but as I didn't have any Greek yogurt in the fridge, I tried it with liquid crème fraîche and it worked fine. It's a lovely refreshing accompaniment to barbecued meat or could be made into a complete meal with a hunk of crusty bread for a light lunch.

Creamy Cucumber & Tomato Salad


ingredients :

3/4 of a cucumber
2 tomatoes
about 10cl of liquid crème fraîche
a sprinkle of salt
1tsp dried mint
1tsp dried rose petals (optional)
a handful of flaked almonds

Finely slice the cucumber and tomatoes and put them in a large bowl. Pour on the crème fraîche and add the mint and give it all a good stir. Season lightly with salt to taste. Scatter flaked almonds and rose petals on top for extra crunch and prettiness.
