Keeping it simple . . .
When I make a salad it’s an elaborate event. I tear lettuce into bite sized pieces and chop everything but the kitchen sink on top of it. I whisk together a dressing, add a little cheese, then fuss with it until I’m finally satisfied with my masterpiece.
Cool Asian Cucumber Salad
I decided that tonight’s salad wasn’t going to be a masterpiece, just a simple dish of cucumbers to go with the chicken baking in the oven.
Crunchy English cucumbers marinated in an Asian dressing spiked with chili garlic sauce were a refreshing change from the usual lettuce, carrots, tomatoes and kitchen sink.
- 1 large English cucumber, sliced
- ½ cup green onion, sliced
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon mirin
- ½ tablespoon sesame oil
- ¼ tsp chili garlic sauce
