Sesame Cucumber Salad
(Adapted from Chow.com)
2 English cucumbers, peeled & thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced (optional but yummy!)
2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
Directions: Slice cucumbers and onion very thin (I used a mandolin slicer). Place cucumbers in a colander or salad spinner and drain liquid. You can also use a kitchen towel to squeeze out liquid. Salt cucumbers. Mix together vinegar, sesame oil, and sugar. Toss with onion and cucumbers and top with sesame seeds. This dish tastes even better when marinated in the refrigerator for a few hours. Makes 4 servings.
