Notes

  • Note 1 Think about the cucumber being a rectangle in shape having 4 long sides. You want to rotate the cucumber as you grate it into longs strips rotating to all 4 sides of the rectangle as you go. Stop on each side when you get to the core. 
  • Note 2 the cucumber will be quite wet. You can use paper towel to absorb some of this, or just shake the cucumber ribbons over the sink when ready to plate.
  • Note 3 it is better to let people dress their own salad using a spoon as they go. The balsamic is a strong flavour and this allows them to suit their particular taste. The other thing is that it won't stay fresh with the vinegar over it in a nice visual way and too much of it will pool in the bottom of the salad dish making everything soggy. So save the dressing till serving time.
