  • add   2 fresh cucumbers, peeled, cut in half lenghwise, seeded* and cut into 1/4 inch slices. *I use a melon baller to remove the seeds.
  • add   1 Tbs. Sea Salt
  • add   3 Tbs. Rice Wine vinegar
  • add   1 Tbs. sugar or substitute
  • add   1 Tbs. Sesame oil
  • add   1/4 tsp. white or black sesame seeds
  • add   salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place sliced cucumbers in a colander in the sink. Sprinkle with Sea Salt and let sit for at least 1 hour. This removes a lot of the water in the cucumbers.
  2. Place Rice Wine vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, sesame seeds and pepper in a medium sized bowl. Mix well. Add the cucumbers and coat well with dressing. Taste, then add additional salt if needed.
  3. Can serve immediately, or refrigerate and serve within a day or two. May serve cold or room temperature.
