Barn Drift cucumber salad with feta and dill

We recently had a wonderful long weekend in a beautiful house called Barn Drift in Cley on the north Norfolk coast to celebrate our friend’s birthday. A few of us cooked up a feast for sixteen for our Saturday supper so I’m naming this #FridayRecipe salad in honour of the event. I made a huge bowl of this but it can be scaled up or down obviously – it goes beautifully with lamb.

Barn Drift cucumber salad

  • 3 cucumbers
  • A handful of fresh mint and dill, finely chopped
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 4 tablespoons of Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste

To make…

  • Halve the cucumbers lengthwise and scoop out the seeds (I use a melon baller or a small spoon). Chop into rough bite-sized chunks and add to a large serving bowl.
  • Add the yoghurt, herbs, vinegar, oil and feta. Mix thoroughly and chill in the fridge until you need to serve it.
