Sesame Cucumber Side Salad

What to serve as accompanyment to the Cold Noodles of my previous post? Ms. Atlas' menu provided a simple yet strikingly unusual (and tasty) cucumber salad.

     Sesame Cucumber Salad
          from Vegetarian Express by Nava Atlas & Lillian Kayte
  • 1 long English seedless cucumber, unpeeled
  • 2 Tbls oil [I used grapeseed oil]
  • 2 1/2 Tbls rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1-2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 Tbls toasted sesame seeds

  1. Slice the cucumber very thinly.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, soy sauce & honey. Stir to mix thoroughly, then stir in the ginger. Pour the oil and vinegar mix over the cucumber slices and toss well. Sprinkle the top with sesame seeds.
