Fresh, fresh, fresh and so good--I have a minor obsession with this incredibly fast cucumber salad. Not only for the healthy of it (under 50 calories!!), but it is really, truly, delish. And fast--I know I said that already. Let it sit at room temp a bit, but if you can't wait, just smash it immediately. Either way, you will get as addicted as I am. Make a large amount for a crowd and be prepared to get asked for the recipe.

"Double the recipe to serve more!"

Notes: Garlic salt is Lawry's.

Sesame Cucumbers

Ingredients: 1/2 English cucumber, 1 tbsp. black sesame seeds. Quick Asian Dressing: 1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil, 1 tsp. rice vinegar, 1 tsp. soy sauce, 1/4 tsp. garlic salt, 1 tsp. honey.

Serves 2.

1. Make dressing: Whisk all ingredients in the bottom of a bowl until fully emulsified.

2. Slice cucumber, about 1/8 inch wide, but it isn't imperative.

3. Tip cucumbers into a bowl or platter, drizzle dressing over. Let it sit 10 minutes or so to deepen the flavor. Toss, and sprinkle over sesame seeds.
