This salad is made from ribbons of cucumber marinated in an Asian-inspired dressing. This dish is great for a side dish, appetizer, or eaten just on its own!
Slice the cucumber into ribbons using a mandolin. I love my mandolin but don’t use it often enough – so it’s great to get it out of the cupboard and use it again! If you don’t have a mandolin then a vegetable peeler would be OK, but a mandolin is WAY more satisfying!
Marinate the cucumber ribbons in the dressing for at least an hour in the fridge – or overnight is great too. When ready to serve, drain the cucumber. Toast some sesame seeds in a dry frying pan.
Arrange the cucumber on a serving plate and sprinkle with the sesame seeds, fresh cilantro leaves and red pepper flakes – if you like. Which I do like – very much!!Asian Marinated Cucumber Salad - a #lowcarb side dish full of amazing flavors! Click To Tweet
