Method

1
Begin by preparing the cucumber soup. Add the cucumbers, mint and coriander to a blender and blitz until smooth and vibrant green in colour
  • 2 1/2 cucumbers, roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch of mint, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of coriander, chopped
2
Add the sherry vinegar and Tabasco to taste and blend again – the soup should have quite a strong flavour and be slightly acidic, similar to a gazpacho
  • 2 tbsp of sherry vinegar
  • 3 dashes of Tabasco
3
Chill the soup in the fridge for at least an hour, or until ready to serve. Place the feta for the crumble in the freezer for at least an hour to chill and firm up
