This recipe, Diana use the healthy mayo and long strings of cucumbers mixed with a creamy herb dressing and cherry tomatoes are so much fun served as a side with fish or grilled meat in the summer. Mark‘s favourite cherry tomatoes are the variety Sun Gold, which they grow every year at the farm. They are less acidic than red tomatoes and have the most beautiful yellow/orange color, which has been Mark’s favourite hue since he was a little kid. If you’ve never used a spiral vegetable slicer before, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make noodles out of all kinds of vegetables. Just please watch out for the very sharp blades! 😉
