6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup salad, 1 teaspoon green onions, and 3/4 teaspoon peanuts)

Peanuts add crunchy texture in this cool, refreshing cucumber salad, while dark sesame oil adds depth to the simple rice vinegar dressing.

How to Make It

Not bad. I used an English cucumber which (maybe?) releases more water, and as such, I was left with a bowl of cucmbers soaking in what seemed close to 1/2 cup of water. However, after fishing out the cucumber slices and plating them as a side to Soy-Marinated Pork sandwiches they ended up being quite tasty. This would make a quick, convenient, and lo-cal side to anything Asian but particularly anything spicy or grilled meats.

Love this salad. Light, crisp and tangy. I prefer it on the sweet side. So I taste and adjust sugar by a few teaspoons. it depends on the rice vinegar. I decrease salt to 1/4 teaspoon and omit peanuts and onions. I just didn't have it and it tastes fine that way. Always gets rave reviews. When i don't have fresh cukes, i use long english ones. I double it, but put in ziplock bags separately and then add them back together.
