Spago Cucumber Salad has a wonderful crisp taste and a slight Asian flavor.  You can use it with fish, chicken, or as a side dish by itself.  It is greatsto use during anytime of the year.  I especially like to use my lemon cucumbers out of my garden during the summer months.

The Asian-style dressing was fast to make and tasted vinegary and sweet at the same time.

Spago Cucumber Salad Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 0

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

2 cups thinly-sliced Japanese cucumbers*
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds

* American or English cucumbers may be substituted (this is what I usually do), but cucumbers need to be peeled, cut lengthwise, seeded, and sliced into thin half moons.  I like to use my lemon cucumbers out of my garden in this recipe (peeled and sliced whole).

 

Instructions:

In a large bowl, combine cucumbers and salt; mix well.  Add sugar, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil; mix well.

Sprinkle with sesame seed and mix.  Let marinate for 20 minutes before serving.  NOTE: If you desire, drain off some of the vinegar mixture before serving.

To serve, divide salad among individual chilled plates.

Makes 4 servings.
