Delicious Summer Side Dish
This crunchy cucumber salad is simple but loaded with flavor. It's sweet, spicy, nutty, acidic, and so refreshing.
Remove half of the skin in strips then score with a fork and slice. They look like little cucumber flowers and have the best texture!
Salt the Cucumbers to draw out some of their moisture, then discard the excess water. This will let them soak up the dressing more readily.
Add the sugar and vinegars to the cucumber salad, and let them soak for at least 10 minutes before serving to develop the best flavor.
For this recipe use whole Calabrian chili peppers that you've sliced, and black sesame seeds for the best color contrast.
The flavors in this cucumber salad make it such a crowd pleaser. It's a must-try ASAP (recipe below)
