Standing in the aisle of the local store, I spotted an English cucumber, actually a number of them. I did not like the seedy cukes before, I discovered the English cucumber. Now, I adore this much nicer variety. The other day, I did not have a green in the house except for one cucumber. I cut it up with some cherry tomatoes and feta cheese and a little vinegar and it was wonderful.
This salad is also easy and good.
Simple Salad adapted from Eating Well
1 English cucumber, sliced
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
Add the cucumbers and sesame seeds; toss well to combine.
To toast sesame seeds, heat a small dry skillet over low heat. Add sesame seeds and stir constantly until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.

I'm terrible, I can't distinguish the taste difference in cucumber varietals.ReplyDelete
This looks good!ReplyDelete
Nice quick salad idea.ReplyDelete
So simple and delicious. I usually use regular vinegar and no sesame seeds, but next time I am making a change :)ReplyDelete
