Simple Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Abi Fae

Just adding to the lists of Asian food for the ZWT! What makes this special is the black vinegar. If you can't get any, use regular rice vinegar, but if you can find black... GET IT. It's like the difference between Italian and Spanish olive oils. Subtle and amazing. From Hot, Sour, Salty, Sweet

Scrumptious and easy to make - this is definitely a summer 2010 fridge staple; I had some left over raw veggies left (onion, pepper, etc.) that I chucked in as well and it was /so/ tasty. I completely ignored my entree!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut strips off the peel, so that it is striped. Fancy! Pretty food is good food. Cut the cucumber lengthwise into fourths. Seed and slice into 1 inch lengths.
  2. Mix both vinegars. Add sugar and salt to taste. Pour over the cucumber.
  3. Mound the cucumber on a plate. Top with ginger.
  4. note: If you double the recipe, double the cucumber and add only another half recipe of the dressing.
