'Dressed' Cucumber

'Dressed' Cucumber

Patrice G. Ward 0

"A Barbadian spin on cucumber salad, almost always served as a side dish with main meals. Also used (with the addition of parsley and a touch of allspice) as the 'pickle' in 'soused' meats (pork, lamb, beef/oxtails, chicken). Fresh lime juice is the key to this delicious salad."

we really liked this recipe tho i added 'quite' abit more hot sauce (chipotle tabasco), and lime juice and also sprinkled in some course ground black pepper and there was plenty of marinade for the veggies...i served it with bbq'd fish and baked taters...will forsure make it again...thanks for the recipe...


Not a bad cucumber salad, a bit different from what I'm used to, I feel it needed something, I did add a extra dash of hot pepper sauce, a little bit more water. There wasn't any juice to this salad, so I wasn't sure extactly if that was right. It's seasoned for sure, dressed??? I'm not so sure. But it's a decent light summery salad for sure. Do try. Will make again and play around with the flavor more. Thanks


i have made my own version of this salad for my family. the addition of fresh parley, some onion and maybe more lime juice for a tangy flavour. shredding the cucumber finely may also help in the absorption of the flavors. Bye oh and ps. leaving the cucumber until it turns soft: it has something to do with osmosis. i'm 14 so i'm not a pro but i'm barbadian so i hope i helped
