Cucumber and Celery Salad

A bottom-of-the-fridge side dish affair, helpful as we are existing on storecupboard stocks as we were away and couldn't shop at the weekend. I like this sort of challenge! If you're feeling greedy, or if your feta hasn't mutated into a weird festering orange thing, you can use feta instead of celery.


  • Two stalks of celery
  • A quarter of a cucumber
  • a handful of mint leaves
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • juice of half a lemon
  • splash of olive oil

Dice the celery and cucumber into bite-sized pieces, finely chop the mint leaves, and combine in a bowl with the other ingredients. Serve with something hot and spicy by way of contrast.
