A nice refreshing accompaniment to sates, dim sum, mu shu wrappers, and bulgoki.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend together sesame oil, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, and pepper flakes.
  2. Stir cucumbers and onions into the mixture, and pour all into a ziploc bag, removing excess air, so salad marinates well.
  3. Marinate salad several hours or overnight.

I just don't understand how the amount written is enough for 6 people. I multiply by 4.

This is a "saver" and goes into my Company's coming cookbook. The cucumber stays crunchy and what a great flavor. I served it with Sushi. The whole bowl disappeared. Thanks Sue for another great recipe

A very tasty accompaniment to Grilled Chicken Satay! Also great as a delicious alternative to the usual mixed greens salad we serve most often. I rated this recipe four stars instead of five, because I found the serving size a bit paltry for my heartier appettite.
