If you are looking for something a little bit different to enjoy this summer, try this Asian Cucumber Salad! Unlike so many of our typical seasonal salads, this one has no mayo. It makes a great addition to any bbq, cookout, or weeknight dinner.
Although I think this salad is best with that bumper crop of cucumbers from the garden, this is one side salads that would be great all year long! Cucumbers are relatively inexpensive in the off-season.
Personally, I like to scoop out the seeds out of the cucumbers for this particular salad, but you can leave them if you prefer. Sometimes, we even add in some grape tomatoes that have been cut in half.
This Asian Cucumber Salad was also a great addition to our Korean Beef dinner. We normally have it with steamed rice and broccoli - so the switch to this cool and refreshing salad was a nice change - especially with the temperatures soaring well over 100°F here in Phoenix!
