The Asian Cucumber Salad with a tangy, sweet dressing is so fresh and delicious.  You can have it with any meal or even as a snack on it’s own.  You can especially serve this at your BBQ/Braai.  The light, refreshing flavours and coolness of this salad is great on a hot day!

A good tip, is to make sure you slice the cucumbers nice and thin and you can adjust the flavours in the dressing by adding more vinegar or Mirin to the dressing.  I like to finish this Asian Cucumber Salad off with a sesame seed and seaweed seasoning that I found in my local grocery store.  If you can’t find it you can add toasted sesame seeds to finish off the salad.  You can add some crispy seaweed too which will improve the nutritional content of this salad.

Your family will love this Asian Cucumber Salad and it is great served with this Lebanese Lemon Garlic Chicken dish!  Did you know that Cucumbers have zero calories, so you actually burn more calories eating them than what they’re worth!

You could also double this recipe if you’re having a large gathering!

If you make this dish and you’re on instagram, please post a photo and tag me in it.  That would be amazing – thank you!
