Stage 1 - 10 min.

Wash 1 cucumber, peel and slice (a mandolin is the ideal tool for this), then cut into sticks, and finally into small dice.

Put to wait in a seive.

If you prefer your cucumber softer rather than crunchy, salt lightly to tenderise and draw out some of the juice.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Remarks

Take care to use the recommended quantity of olive oil; it's important for the end result, and ideally use Greek oil if you can.

Use a red onion if possible; they are available in the summer and are so good raw.

And to drink?: If you like it, why not the famous Greek white wine Retsina? Or a fruity rosé from Provence. To accompany this salad perfectly, drink one or the other, well chilled and in the shade.
