Cucumber Salad

This refreshing cucumber salad uses a fun and tasty mix of flavors to tantalize your taste buds. Might be just the thing for you to bring to your friend’s barbecue.

  • 5 cups Cucumbers, regular or English,
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 4 med Scallions, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp Fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 clove Fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup Rice vinegar
  • 1 tbs Soy sauce
  • 1 tbs Toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbs Agave syrup
  • 1 tsp Red chili paste or sriracha (to taste)
  • 1 tbs Toasted sesame seeds

1. Using a fork, score the cucumbers lengthwise, then slice into thin rounds.

2. Toss cucumbers and salt in a bowl and set aside for about five minutes. (This helps the cucumbers release a bit of water.)

3. Strain cucumbers but don’t rinse, then mix in a large bowl with the remaining ingredients.

4. Taste and adjust salt and chili paste if needed. Refrigerate before serving and if you can wait, at least half an hour.
