Woman's Weekly recipe A refreshing cucumber, raspberry and blueberry salad with crab meat. It has a raspberry vinegar dressing. Can be eaten as a main or an accompaniment.


  • 1 cucumber
  • 8-12 small radishes
  • About 90g (3oz) raspberries
  • About 60g (2oz) blueberries
  • 200g (7oz) crab meat
  • Handful of fresh parsley leaves
  • A little finely sliced radicchio, optional
For the dressing:
  • 2 tbs raspberry vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 4 tps light olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Make the salad and serve it immediately, otherwise the cucumber ribbons will lose their bounce.


  1. To make the dressing: Whisk the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Cut the cucumber in half and use a swivel-headed vegetable peeler to shave ribbons off each half into a large bowl. Add thinly sliced radishes and the fruit, and toss gently with half the dressing. Arrange the salad on 4 or 6 plates.
  3. Spoon crab meat on top and garnish with parsley leaves and radicchio, if using. Drizzle the rest of the dressing over each portion.
