Fresh, fresh, fresh, and so good--I have a minor obsession with this incredibly fast cucumber salad. And fast--I know I said that already. Let it sit at room temperature, but if you can't wait, smash it immediately. Either way, you will get as addicted as I am. Make a significant amount for a crowd, and be prepared to get asked for the recipe.
Notes: Garlic salt is Lawry's.
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.
1. Make the 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. You could also chop to make the texture closer to chunky salsa.
3. Tip cucumbers into a bowl or platter and drizzle over the dressing. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so to deepen the flavor. Toss, and sprinkle over sesame seeds.
