This might be the easiest dish I’ll have on my blog. Though I strive to make all my recipes fail-proof while keeping them healthy and wholesome, this one still might be the easiest. Here it goes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large cucumber, washed
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (black or white are fine)

Directions:

  1. Slice the cucumber as thin as you can. If you have a mandolin, this would be a perfect time to use it! If not, be careful for your fingers.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour the marinade over the cucumber and mix thoroughly.
  4. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.

*NOTES*

  • You sure can eat these right away, but I recommend letting them soak in the marinade overnight. It will make the flavor much better.
  • Cucumbers are a very water-dense vegetable. Even the small amount of salt in the marinade will pull some of the water off the cucumbers making the mixture more liquid-y – osmosis, man! I recommend draining off most of the remaining marinade before enjoying them.

I hope you love this recipe and I hope you make it time and time again when you need veggie inspiration. πŸ™‚

Eat your veggies!
