Easy Asian Cucumber Salad with Sesame Oil
Summer dining doesn’t have to take much time or energy, especially when you have fresh ingredients on hand. That’s the beauty of this Asian-inspired cucumber salad.
This Asian Cucumber Salad with Sesame Oil is perfect for alfresco dining. Just withhold the dressing until you are ready to serve the salad.
This recipe came as a result of needing a side for my Asian Tuna Steak recipe. Ahi Tuna in and of itself needs a flavorful side and this cucumber salad pairs well with it.
What I love about this salad is that it is offers a lot of crunch thanks to the cucumbers ad broccoli florets. And even more important is that this salad holds up long after the dressing has been drizzled. No soggy veggies here.
You’ll love this recipe because it makes for a quick and easy lunch or dinner side. It takes just a couple of minutes to chop and dice and dress. Then serve it alongside your favorite protein like roasted chicken, beef, ham or even grilled tuna.
To make it yourself:
Use garden fresh cucumbers, broccoli florets, tasty red peppers and crunch celery sliced thinly.
Then, mix the dressing and pour it over the vegetables. Garnish with black sesame seeds. Enjoy!
