Szechuan Cucumber Salad

On Monday I made this to go with a carrot and ginger salad, fried chinese leaf, sticky rice and grilled soy chicken. 


1 cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks


2 garlic cloves

1 tablespoon Szechuan peppercorns

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon groundnut oil

1 teaspoon chilli flakes

How I made it:

Pound up garlic in pestle and mortar with a pinch of salt, add Szechuan peppercorns and pound up a bit to release flavour. Add all of the other dressing ingredients and mix. Toss the cucumber in the dressing in a bowl. Add more salt or vinegar if necessary.
