with an asian flair, this is wonderful as a first course or a side dish to tame the heat of spicier dishes.
- Mix the wasabi with 1/2 teaspoon warm water in the bottom of a mixing bowl and let it stand for 5 minutes.
- Peel the cucumbers, cut each one in half lengthwise, and use a melon baller or spoon to scoop out the seeds. slice thinly widthwise.( if using english hothouse just cut in half lengthwise and slice thinly).
- Add the vinegar and sugar to the wasabi and whisk until smooth.
- Whisk in the sesame oil, salt and pepper. Just before serving, add the cucumbers, green onion, and sesame seeds to the dressing and mix well.
Very nice, I cut the sesame oil in half (I thought it was fine with that amount and feared much more would be overpowering) and added just a splash of low sodium soy sauce. I just love a summer salad (so flavorful, btw) that won't spoil in the summer heat like a mayo based salad will. Thanks for sharing!
An excellent recipe. Very good and refreshing.
Loved this one. I'm trying to use more wasabi since I found this wonderful ingredient a year ago. Thanks for posting this one which I'll make again!
