Cucumber salad with smashed garlic and ginger
This is a dish I (Sofia) first made for my mum in an effort to find new things in the Ottolenghi book "Plenty" that she could eat on her no carb, high fat diet. I think it helped that it beams of asian flavours which inevitably leads to reminiscing of our holiday in Vietnam together.
It was such a delicious discovery that I made it for my friends at Rooi Els when we all went up to Madeleine's beach house on the edge of the ocean. Needless to say it got a big thumbs up.
This post is for Madeleine at her request for the recipe.
