Cut into small cubes (well, almost cubes).  I slice the cucumbers into half-inch thick slices and then quarter each slice.  Place into a salad bowl and sprinkle 1 teaspoon of salt on them (add more if you like it saltier).Cubed_cucumbers

Then take a head of garlic (around 10-15 cloves). Peel and cut off the stubbly end.garlic

Mince the garlic and add to the cucumber cubes.garlic_on_cucumber_salad

Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and mix well.

I’ve made this as a side dish to accompany grilled sausages and burgers and also as a simple afternoon snack.  I enjoyed it with some watermelon feta salad here.
