Asian-Style Cucumber Salad

Asian-Style Cucumber Salad created by lazyme

These cucumbers are so tasty and addictive. This can be served as a side dish to almost any kind of meat. You can make it to any level of heat as you like. I love the crisp, crunchy, spicy and sweet taste that goes on all at once!

    This is tasty and used things I had on hand. I may cut back on the Sesame OIl a bit next time but since you really don't eat all of that oil, it's not as bad as it seems. A nice compliment to an asian themed meal.

    This is a yummy dish. I served this with an Asian meal and it was the perfect accompaniment. Simple and very tasty. Thanks Grace Lynn for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.

    We liked this a lot, but had to cut garlic down to 3 cloves because of family preference.. I'll make it again because it was easy and the honey added to the dressing made it very tasty.

    A 5-star recipe, even with my mistakes -- I only had 4 cloves garlic in the house and peeled the cucumbers before thinking! I then cut them in half lenthwise and scooped out the seeds before cutting them into spears. Loved the recipe and will try it next time as posted, but it is wonderful even though I did it wrong!
