-

  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled into ribbons
  • A large handful of mint
  • 1 bunch of chives
  • The juice of ½ an oranges
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 fresh pomegranate, seeds only
  • 150 g feta cheese, or soft goat's cheese
  • 2 tbsp currants

Method

1. Wash courgette and cucumber.

2. Peel cucumber and using a peeler, cut the cucumber into ribbons. Do the same with the courgette. Place cucumber in refrigerator.

3. Chop chives into 2cm pieces and roughly chop mint

4. To make the dressing: juice orange and mix with olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tbs of pomegranate molasses. Whisk to combine.
