A refreshing cucumber, raspberry and blueberry salad with crab meat. It has a raspberry vinegar dressing. Can be eaten as a main or an accompaniment.
- 1 cucumber
- 8-12 small radishes
- About 90g (3oz) raspberries
- About 60g (2oz) blueberries
- 200g (7oz) crab meat
- Handful of fresh parsley leaves
- A little finely sliced radicchio, optional
- For the dressing:
- 2 tbs raspberry vinegar or white wine vinegar
- 4 tps light olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
To make the dressing: Whisk the ingredients together in a small bowl.
Cut the cucumber in half and use a swivel-headed vegetable peeler to shave ribbons off each half into a large bowl. Add thinly sliced radishes and the fruit, and toss gently with half the dressing. Arrange the salad on 4 or 6 plates.
Spoon crab meat on top and garnish with parsley leaves and radicchio, if using. Drizzle the rest of the dressing over each portion.
