    Tomato Cucumber Salad

    Here's a nice and simple composed summer salad.

    Funny, I was just getting ready to leave work, wondering what to do with the two English cucumbers I still have in the fridge I guess it will be a variation of your salad. Perfect timing, thanks,

    What do you pour the salad.
    A mixture of mustard and oil?
    Seeds in cucumbers are delicious, too bad that you have deleted them

    The seeds don't survive mixing, and make the salad slimy, as well as providing a hard, slippery distraction to the texture overall.

    Ever tried halving the cukes and then using a spoon to scoop the seeds out, before chopping them up? I' find it to be a lot faster.

    Yes, I've done the spoon before. I guess I could've scraped em down with that after quartering. Truthfully I usually do as I did in the video yet with all four quarters at once. It's faster yet not as accurate. For the shape I was doing, I guess I just wanted them a particular way in that quarter moon fashion. I'll give the spoon another go next time round.

    Knife skills class???
