Cucumber and Almond Salad with Arugula

This is a very flavourful salad that's perfect for the summer. The original recipe calls for Kirby cucumbers, but I had a 1kg English cucumber that needed to be put to good use. The original also calls for a garnish of chopped shiso leaves, but I decided to toss the salad with some baby arugula instead. I also followed the optional addition of grape tomatoes for my portion.
