Cucumber Salad

1 Comment

I’ve tried a ton of cucumber salad recipes I’ve found online and every single time, I was disappointed. I finally gathered up the courage to just wing it. Man, am I glad I did that – this turned out so darn good and it was even better the next day!

I served this as a side to the Pad Thai I posted about earlier.

Cucumber Salad

1 large cucumber, thinly sliced
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of finely chopped green onion
2 tablespoons sesame oil
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey
1 garlic clove, crushed

  1. Sprinkle sliced cucumbers with salt and set aside.
  2. Combine green onion, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, vinegar, soy sauce, honey and garlic in small bowl. Stir to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Toss cucumbers with dressing. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or more.
