  • Cook time: N/A
  • Ready in: 10 min
  • Yields: 1 serving


  • 8 to 10 (¼ inch thick) slices English cucumber
  • Generous pinch dried dill
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 medium carrot
  • ½ small white turnip
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped coriander leaf (cilantro)
  • Black pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 3 medium-thick triangular slices from wedge of Blacksticks Blue (or similar) cheese
  • Instructions

    1. Lay the cucumber slices in a small bowl or deep plate and scatter with the dried dill and some salt. Pour over the white wine vinegar and turn the cucumber slices around a few times in the combination before setting aside for the flavours to start to infuse while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
    2. Peel the carrot and white turnip and grate in to a large bowl. Add the chopped coriander and season with salt and black pepper. Stir well.
    3. Slice the tomatoes to around a quarter inch thickness. Take the cucumber slices from the pickling solution and pat them dry between two sheets of kitchen paper.
    4. Arrange the tomato and cucumber slices alternately around the edge of a deep plate, overlapping, to form a border.
    5. Spoon the carrot and turnip mix in to the centre of the plate and lay the cheese slices on top to serve.
