Dine In: Asian Cucumber Salad


Asian Cucumber SaladCucumbers are so refreshing for summertime, and even super simple to grow in your very own garden or planter if you were so inclined.

Cucumber salads are wonderful side dishes for grilling and for cookouts, especially this Asian version, which doesn’t have anything in it that would spoil if it sat outside at a picnic or barbecue. It would be a great accompaniment to a Father’s Day meal this weekend as well.

This would also be tasty with shredded carrots.

Asian Cucumber Salad

Ingredients:
6 seedless cucumbers
1/4 small red onion
2 Tbs white wine vinegar
2 Tbs sesame seed oil
2 Tbs fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp black sesame seeds, plus more for garnish

Directions:
Slice cucumbers thinly using a mandoline or very sharp knife, and place into a medium bowl. Add red onion.

In another bowl, whisk the rest of the ingredients for the dressing. Pour over the cucumbers and onions. Toss gently to combine. Garnish with additional sesame seeds and fresh cilantro. Chill slightly and serve.

Serves 4 to 6 (as a side dish)
