Cucumber, dill, and coriander combine in this delightful dip which can also be used as a fresh tasting condiment for a wide range of meals. I’ve used it to fill peppers, cucumber and celery as open sandwiches, to dip raw breadsticks or crackers into, as a sauce for falafels or patties, or as a filling for wraps. The delicate green colour comes from the selection of fresh herbs – which if you’re lucky, will have been picked straight from the garden.
Calming zen dip

1/4 cup water
1/4 cucumber, roughly choped

Handful of fresh mint, roughly chopped
Handful of fresh dill, roughly chopped
Handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
1 tsp lime juice
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cayenne (optional)
1. Blend everything until smooth
2. Transfer to a small dish, and use as creatively as you dare
Will keep for three days if stored in the fridge.
Enjoy. I’m off for a watery dip in the river.
