It’s that time of year! Parties. People dropping in unexpectedly. Midnight feasts just because. So I’m coming up with lots of new things to make!
Here’s one I tried out last night and it was gorgeous. And healthy which at this time of year is no mean feat! It will appear on my table again and again. And once you taste it you will do the same!
1 large cucumber, 1 packet of feta (greek not danish), juice of half a lemon, 1 small pack of smoked salmon (I used smoked trout from Lidl at €2.49), black pepper, fresh dill, balsamic vinegar, honey, olive oil.
In a large bowl, crumble your feta, add your chopped salmon or trout, lots of fresh dill, the lemon juice, a good bit of black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix together well. Keep a bit of dill for garnish.
In a small bowl mix the balsamic vinegar and honey to taste.
Cut thick slices of cucumber and remove about half of the seeds with a spoon. You need to be careful as you don’t want the spoon to go through. You need a full bottom to your slice.
Place the slices bottom down on a tray and pour a tiny bit of the honey and vinegar mixture in the little hollow and stack some of the feta and fish mixture. Add some dill on top for garnish.
