sesame cucumber salad

This is a simple, cooling, yummy salad. Use the small, dense Persian Cucumbers.  They have a nice firm texture and bite to them. Cucumber and Asian seasonings are always a great pair!  Great side dish for fish or chicken.


6 or so persian cucumbers (if you don’t have persian, use the one you have)

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

1 teaspoon wine vinegar

2 tablespoons coconut aminos (you can buy it at whole foods) it’s substitute for soy sauce

a sprinkle of garlic powder

black or white pepper to taste



Cut cucumbers into desired shape.

Combine sesame oil, sesame seeds, wine vinegar, coconut aminos, pepper, garlic powder, and other seasonings in medium bowl.

Add Cucumbers and coat well with dressing
