Asian-inspired Cucumber SaladPosted: October 26, 2010
From January 14, 2006: This is a recipe I came up with this past summer when I was overrun with cucumbers from the garden. Let the salad sit for 30 minutes before serving to let the flavors combine.
Asian-inspired Cucumber Salad
2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 chile, minced (optional)
1 – 3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
3 T. sugar
3 T. fish sauce (you may substitute soy sauce)
In a small bowl, combine the garlic, rice wine vinegar, sugar and fish sauce. In a larger bowl combine cucumber, red onion, cilantro, and minced chile. Pour dressing over the salad and toss.
