Method

  1. Use a speed peeler to remove strips of peel from the cucumber. Quarter the cucumber lengthways and chop finely - a food processor is good for this.
  2. Spread the sliced cucumber on a large plate and sprinkle liberally with fine salt. Leave them to stand for 15 minutes then rinse and drain well.
  3. Remove any excess moisture with a paper towel.
  4. In the serving bowl, mix the vinegar and sugar and whisk well until the sugar is dissolved. Add the lime juice and zest and salt to taste.
  5. Mix in the chillies, shallots, mints and cucumbers with the dressing and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  6. Mix well before serving.
