Step 1

Place the cucumber in a colander and sprinkle with sugar and 1 teaspoon salt. Let stand 15 minutes. Toss together green beans, scallions, and oil in a bowl.

Step 2

Season with salt and pepper. Grill in a grill basket over direct heat, tossing occasionally, until beans are charred and tender, for about 12 to 14 minutes.

If you haven’t got your barbeque set up, simply grill them in the oven, turning occasionally. 

Toss together cucumbers, green beans, lemon zest and juice, and dill in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
