Flavors of Spring: Fresh Cucumber Mignonette

Flavors of Spring: Fresh Cucumber Mignonette

Spring is no time to slouch on the slurp. Farmed oysters like our Lucky Labs are great in part because they’re good year-round. Contrary to popular belief, there is no ‘prime season’ with grown oysters. We’re able to ship them fresh, anywhere in the continental U.S.! 

This fresh, springy recipe combines our delicious oysters with bright flavors. It’s a chill and flavorful way to slurp while you enjoy your next patio party. Give this recipe a try when you want something refreshing to pair with your favorite wine or spring cocktail.


  • Fresh Lucky Lab Oysters
  • Crushed ice
  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 piece of ginger
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1tbsp. Sugar
  • Ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Prepared horseradish
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ¼ tsp. Hot sauce
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire


  1. Prepare your mignonette by mixing the rice wine vinegar, ginger, shallots, sugar, cucumber, and black pepper.
  2. Cover and chill for an hour.
  3. While the mignonette is chilling, mix the horseradish, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, lemon zest, and hot sauce to make a cocktail sauce.
