I make mine exactly the same way so no need to wait to try them to rate. I have mine marinating in the fridge as I like them really cold and not at room temp. I did skip the sugar just personal pref and sometimes I add lemon or lime juice but great both ways. Thanks. Made for ZWT 6 for Looney Spoon Phoodies.
This was ok for us. A tad bit too spicy. I left off the cilantro -- store didn't have any. If I make again, I'll cut down the crushed red pepper flakes.
These were pretty good. A little too much sesame oil though. Not our favorite, but pretty good. Made for ZWT6
Easy and delicious too! I halved the recipe easily. Thanks for a great salad! Made by a Looney Spoon Phoodie for ZWT#6.
Easy, peasy and very tasty - LOVED the addition of the chilli and sesame oil, as well as the rice vinegar. Served these with Asian Garlic Sauce, My Thai Sesame Noodles and Salt and Pepper Prawns (Shrimp) for a very Asian and wonderful lunch today. Made for the Cheese and Whine gang and thoroughly enjoyed! Merci, FT:-)
My DH loved them!!! I would prefer a little sweeter, but he told me not to touch them! Made for ZWT6 and the Looney Spoon Phoodies!
Lovely & very flavorful! The heat was nicely contrasted with the sesame oil & tang from the vinegar. Served with Spicy Szechuan Beef for ZWT6~Asia.
I'm integrating this into my Feng Shui to make sure I get my chi right on. Made for ZWT 6.
Oh Bren, just spent the morning *kicking* my cucumbers around the farm, but after they got mashy (from all the kicking), I thought I better re-read the directions. Oh! It said, "Cucumber Salad *with* a kick. Well, then I waited another hour or so for the cucumber to kick back, but alas it never did :( So I gave up since I was hungrier then a bear, and thought I would then look at the rest of the recipe, and boy am I glad I did. I love rice vinegar and find it beautifully complimentary in this dish. The sesame oil added a nice addition to the cucumbers as well as the red pepper flakes which I could eat the whole jar of. I had no problem with the salt, as tend to do this with cucumbers when making cucumber salad, and coupled with the sugar the balance was perfection. Great!! Will make again.
