This refreshing cucumber salad is perfect for a hot summer day ! It’s good as a side salad or just as delicious when mixed in with rice.
This recipe serves 2-3 and it is recommended to eat right away before the cucumber becomes soggy. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do. My little tot loves it but my husband only give it a 6 out of 10 as he doesn’t like cucumber dishes in general.
1 English Cucumber (Julienne or thinly sliced)- Regular cucumber works too.
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
A dash of sesame seeds
Raspberry or Cherry tomatoes for garnish (*optional)
- Wash cucumber, peeled off the outer skin then thinly sliced it into matchsticks. If you are using regular cucumber, just deseed the middle part before slicing it.
- Mix all the sugar, salt, soy sauce, sesame oil into the sliced cucumber in a chilled bowl, give it a few toss to evenly coat the cucumbers.
- Sprinkle with a few toasted sesame seeds and garnish with raspberry or cherry tomatoes.
