Cucumber salad gets better as it sits.  Make this several hours ahead of time and leave it at room temperature. It will last several days in the fridge. I love serving this with grilled meat, chicken, fish or burgers. The flavours are super simple and go with just about everything. Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 English cucumber
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. honey or sugar
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp toasted black and white sesame seeds

Directions Step ONE Using a knife, slicer on a food processor or mandolin, slice the cucumber into 3mm slices.  Place slices in a medium size mixing bowl.

Step TWO Drizzle the vinegar and oil over the cucumbers, sprinkle with the honey and salt, mix and toss together very well.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds, toss.  Let marinate at room temp for about 30 minutes or longer before serving.  Toss again before serving.
