Japanese Cucumber Salad

Vegan

Ingredients

2 medium cucumbers, or 1 large telegraph cucumber

¼ cup rice vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted (see Tip)

Method

Peel cucumbers to leave alternating green stripes. Slice the cucumbers in half lengthwise; scrape the seeds out with a spoon. Using a food processor or sharp knife, cut into very thin slices. Place in a double layer of paper towel and squeeze gently to remove any excess moisture. Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in a medium bowl, stirring to dissolve. Add the cucumbers and sesame seeds; toss well to combine. Serve immediately.

Tip: To toast sesame seeds, heat a small dry skillet over low heat. Add sesame seeds and stir constantly until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.
