Using up Mini Crunch cucumbers

Postby Primrose » Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:23 pm

For a simple summer starter:

Cut the small cucumbers cut into boats lengthways, scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon and stuff with cream cheese. Drizzle a small amount of Chinese sweet chilli sauce over the top and serve on a layer of watercress. Pan roasted pine nuts also make a nice alternative topping to the cream cheese.

Dreamed up more in desperation than inspiration at the sight of the growing number of small cucumbers accumulating in the fridge's salad box ! :lol:
