Cucumber SaladPosted: March 6, 2012
This is a super easy recipe .. easy to make & easy to modify.
1. The Sauce
Remove the seeds of 1 red chili ( more if you like hot ), cut into thin strips. Mince the leaves of 3 sprigs cilantro. Combine chili and cilantro together in a bowl, add 2 table spoons lime juice, 1 table spoon soy sauce, 1 table spoon sugar, and 2 table spoons e.v.o.o, stir well. On this part you can adjust the ingredients to your taste. If you like sweet add more sugar, etc.
2. The Cucumber
Trim the end of 1 cucumber then cut the cucumber a long spiral way using potato peeler, stop just before the inner seed part. Make sure your potato peeler is in well condition, mine was not sharp enough and took time to make a long and nice cut.
Mix the cucumber with the sauce, sprinkle with roasted peanuts, add dried cherries. I also added blueberries just for fun. You can modify the toppings as you like.
