Now, let's put those homegrown goodies to delicious use with a smashed cucumber salad. This refreshing dish is not only a taste sensation but also a celebration of your sustainable efforts.

Recipe: Smashed Cucumber Salad


  • 2 fresh cucumbers (straight from your Vegepod!)
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • Handful of mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Start by smashing the cucumbers. Place them in a ziplock bag and gently smash them with a rolling pin. This creates texture and makes for a unique salad experience.
  • In a large bowl, combine the smashed cucumbers, sliced red onion, diced tomatoes, crumbled feta, and chopped mint.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and red wine vinegar. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to let the flavours meld.
  • Serve your Smashed Cucumber Salad as a side or a light, refreshing main dish. The best part? You grew a significant portion of it right in your Vegepod!
