I used a mixture of peanut butter and Tahiti and it was great. I'm not sure the ginger really added anything, and I left out the stock - turned out to be a good call as would have been way too salty otherwise.

I have made this with both tahini and peanut butter - peanut butter was way better. Also - my family are not cucumber fans so I have added red pepper, mange tout or soy beans depending on what's in the fridge. My family love this, and I love it because it's so quick to make.

This was really quite salty and bitter, which is a shame as I really liked the idea of it. It might be better with peanut butter as I used tahini.
