1 English cucumber

1 ball (about 150g) fresh mozzarella

1 cup black berries

2 tablespoons liquid honey

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 red finger chili, thinly sliced 

Salt and Pepper


Line a container with paper towel

1. Trim the ends of the cucumber. Cut the cucumber in half crosswise. Take the first half and make ribbons by “peeling” it with a vegetable peeler. Transfer the ribbons to the paper towel lined container to wick away excess moisture. Cut the other half of the cucumber in half lengthwise. Cut each half into chunks and transfer them to the container with the cucumber ribbons.  Cover and store in the refrigerator.

2. Arrange the cucumber ribbons and chunks on a serving platter. 

3. Drain the mozzarella and tear it into bite sized pieces. Arrange the mozzarella over the cucumbers. Scatter the black berries over top. Season generously with salt and pepper. Drizzle everything with the honey and olive oil. Garnish with the chili.

Serve immediately!
