Photo: Hector Sanchez; Stylist: Buffy Hargett
Yield Makes 4 to 6 servings
Slice the cucumbers just until you reach the seeds, but no farther or the noodles become raggedy. Pair with fish or shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 6 large cucumbers
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup thinly sliced green onions, green parts only
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Toasted sesame seeds

How to Make It

  1. Peel cucumbers; cut into thin strips using the julienne blade of a mandoline. (Yield should be about 8 cups.) Toss together cucumbers and salt, and drain in a colander 30 minutes.

  2. Toss together green onions, next 3 ingredients, and drained cucumbers. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
