Light and refreshing cucumber and citrus go perfectly together in this simple salad. Slicing the cucumber thinly makes a little go a long way. Enjoy as a starter or with some baked chicken or fish. 

Serves 4-6

2 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp caster sugar
¼ cup chopped dill
½ telegraph cucumber, sliced thinly
1 grapefruit, segmented
1 lime, segmented
1 orange, segmented
½ cup rocket leaves
Extra dill leaves to serve
Salt and pepper to taste

1. In a small bowl combine the balsamic, sugar and chopped dill. Add the sliced cucumber and allow to sit, tossing once or twice, for at least 30 minutes or up to a few hours.

2. In a large bowl combine the cucumber with the grapefruit, lime and orange, tossing well. Just before serving add the rocket leaves and serve on a platter.

3. Garnish with a few extra dill leaves and a grind of fresh salt pepper.
