Carrot & Cucumber Salad… And Nothing Else…


Dinner tonight went horribly wrong. I followed this recipe for peanut chicken with carrot and cucumber salad. The salad was lovely (swapped shallot for red onion). But the peanut chicken came out rather weirdly. The peanut ‘sauce’ just peeled off the chicken, the way copydex peels off your fingers. And then the peanut ‘sauce’ coagulated into a kind-of peanut-flavoured scrambled egg mixture, stuck to the baking tray.

(I have, only now, read the comments at the bottom of that recipe… I suppose I should have been warned…)

But anyway, the carrot and cucumber salad was very nice, and I’d make it again. Nicely photogenic, and very fresh. Let us never speak of peanut chicken again…
