Colman's (of Norwich) Original English Noodle Beet Salad

1/3 lb angel hair pasta
2 beets
1 cucumber
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp Colman's (of Norwich) Original English Mustard. Or, you know, whatever yellow mustard you want.
a 1-second glug of soy sauce
2 tbsp apple cider (optional, if you want it sweeter)

Break the pasta into thirds. Cook it. Grate the beets. Cut the cucumber into matchsticks, or maybe grate it (does grating a cucumber work?)... just get it into small thin pieces. Mix them.

Mix everything else. It will look like hell, thanks to the cinnamon floating on top. Now pour it over the solid food. Doesn't look like hell anymore, right? In fact, with the purple noodles and all, it actually looks pretty okay. Season to taste, garnish with your favorite garnish, serve with furious gusto.
