We’re interrupting our regularly scheduled program. Ice Cream/Frozen Treat Week ( # 2 ) will return bright and early Monday morning. Until then, we’re going to leave you with these snack-tactic cucumber recipe. You’re not gonna want to miss it.
This quick and easy recipe makes the perfect summer side salad. Seriously. Even better? It only uses a few simple ingredients, but it’s chock full of crispy, crunchy cucumbers and packs a ton of flavor with just the right amount of kick. It’s a great addition to any end of summer bash.
Asian Cucumber Salad
2 English cucumbers, finely sliced
3/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon sesame oil
dash of red pepper flakes
1-2 tbsp sesame seeds
- In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, water, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, oil, and red peppers flakes (if using) until evenly incorporated. Pour the dressing over the slo Ed cucumbers, tossing to coat. Let the cucumbers ‘marinate’, chilled, for about an hour.
- Before serving, sprinkle sesame seeds over top. Serve chilled, but the longer these sit they will eventually turn into Asian-flavored pickles 😉 We make sure to use them within 24 hours.
Yummy! 🙂 I think I’ll do this with dinner. Thanks for bringing to Fiesta Friday. 🙂
Delicious simple salad. I love it!
Ooh, this sounds lovely, that dressing looks so good 🙂 Thank you for sharing this with us at Fiesta Friday this week 🙂 have a great weekend x
This sounds like such a refreshing dish that is quick to make! I love that it retains a bit go crunch and crispiness. With a GF soy sauce this is one I can try. Happy FF, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
This would be perfect to my chicken BBQ. 😀 Have a lovely week ahead. xx
