Here is my adaptation of an old English recipe for an unusual and decorative cucumber salad. I find that the cream dressing instead of mayonnaise goes particularly well.
Peel the cucumber and chop up into cubes. Mix it in a bowl with the chopped chives, the walnuts and the lemon juice. Arrange the leutuce leaves on a serving dish and then spoon the cucumber mixture on top. Mix the dressing ingredients together until smooth and pour over the salad.
