|-This ultra-simple entree depends absolutely on the quality of its best you can buy and the oil hazelnut if possible but, in any case, a well-flavoured nut oil. As hazelnut oil can be difficult to find, you could substitute a walnut or macadamia nut oil.
Score 750 g of cucumbers lengthwise with the tines of a fork or peel them if you prefer. Slice paper thin, put in a colander, sprinkle with salt and let them degorge for half an hour.
Turn out of the colander, rinse and dry with paper towels. In a bowl toss the slices with 50 mL lemon juice, then arrange them on six plates. Dust with white pepper. Cut about 100 to 120 g firm goat cheese into thin slices and arrange two or three on each plate. Sprinkle 50 mL of hazelnut oil over the six servings.
Makes 6 servings.
