1 English cucumber

A spoonful of olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper 

Handful chopped fresh mint or dill


  1. Peel, halve lengthwise and seed the cucumber. Cut into chunks the size of large croutons or slice into thin half-moons. It depends on whether you want al dente chunks or soft, silkier petals. Both have their merits, depending on what you're serving with. Heat the olive oil in a pan. Saute the cucumber until hot and softened to your liking, about 5 minutes, depending on size. Season with salt and pepper and toss in the mint. Serve warm or at room temperature.
