Excellent as a salad for a heavy meal. I just line salad plates with lettuce and top with the salad. Also a good accompaniment to spicy chinese dishes. Prep time includes standing and chill time.

Directions

  1. Peel cucumbers slice thin into a large bowl, sprinkle with salt and mix well.
  2. Set aside for 45 minutes.
  3. Put cucumbers in a strainer and squeeze as much liquid as possible out.
  4. Discard liquid.
  5. Mix lemon juice, sugar, and white vinegar, add cucumbers.
  6. Chill.
  7. Garnish salad with toasted sesame seeds.

I was looking for a salad recipe that my children would eat (gotta get those veggies in!), and decided to try this one. I was so sure they would love this one since they all love cucumbers. Well, the children wouldn't eat it, but I loved it! The cucumbers had a very nice flavor and the recipe was so easy to prepare. I'll keep looking for a recipe for the children and keep this one for special occasions.
