Most salads’ reputation is made by their dressing. The salad that follows is, by contrast, almost naked, just a splash of fruity oil for lubrication and some sharp red wine vinegar for punch. The result is a salad with both a refreshing crunch and salty bite. A summer lunch of singular freshness and vitality. If you wish, add three or four handfuls of boiled and skinned broad beans to the salad instead of, or as well as, the cucumber.
1 medium to large cucumber
1 large bunch of radishes
6 spring onions
350g feta cheese
1 small bunch of mint
1 small bunch of coriander
Red wine vinegar - not too smooth
