Spicy Asian Cucumber Salad


This is an easy and quick Asian Cucumber Salad, that I found to be very refreshing with these lingering high temperatures here in East Texas. There is sweet, sour, hot and salty--all of the components of the fours tastes of a umami explosion!



Asian Cucumber Salad

Ingredients:
3/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon lite soy sauce (gf if need be)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 large cucumbers, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
2 fresh chili peppers, sliced (optional)

Directions:
In a large bowl, stir together rice vinegar, water, sugar, soy sauce, salt, and sesame oil.

Add cucumbers, tossing to coat. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Add sesame seeds and peppers, and toss; serve immediately.

  27. It is a tempting appetizer. I can relish the tangy/sweet taste that is made even more preppy with the spice of pepper.
