I nicked this recipe from a book recently and can't get enough of it! It is so sweet and refreshing, it tastes like a weak cucumber salad.

3-4 mini cucumbers or half a large one
2 shallots
1 green onion

4 tb rice vinegar
3 tb sugar
1 tb soy sauce
3 cups cold water
red or other peppers to taste (optional)

matchstick the vegs, salt if desired. Combine other ingredients and pour over vegs. Chill, keeps several days. I think it's even better the second day.

I omit the shallots if I don't have any. I also use a garlic flavored rice vinegar, but it's great with regular too.

I'm making everyone I know taste it, many converts. The kids especially love it. If you try it, tell me what you think!

Default Honeydew Melon and Cucumber Adult Beverage

Me too had the kind of recipe with cucumber. It's actually adult drink which contains vodka. Who would like to prepare this chilled drink at home can try it.

Honeydew Melon and Cucumber Adult Beverage


1 cup Honeydew
1/2 cup Cucumber
1 wedge of squeezed Lime
A dash of Salt
simple Syrup (optional)


Step 1: Cut open a Honeydew melon and remove the seeds. Also, peel and De-seed 1/2 a Cucumber.

Step 2: Put 1 cup Honeydew, 1/2 cup Cucumber, 1 wedge of squeezed Lime, a dash of Salt in the blender, a healthy helping of Vodka and blend it to death. I really wish we had kept the juicer, because it would have come in handy right here. After blending, strain the juice from the Pulp and chill.

The drink is slightly Sweet, with a very distinct Cucumber taste even with the Melon Vodka. Filter the drink even more and add a shot of simple syrup the final product. Then it would be awesome.

Serve Chilled.
