Sesame-Soy Cucumber Salad

From Susannah Chen, POPSUGAR Food

Soy Cucumber Salad


  1. 4 large Japanese or Persian cucumbers, washed and plunged in an ice bath
    1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
    3 tablespoons white vinegar
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sesame oil


  1. Prep the cucumbers: Remove the cucumbers from the ice bath. Chop the ends off the sides of each cucumber; peel cucumbers, leaving alternating green stripes of skin. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise; use a small spoon to remove and discard cucumber seeds. Slice crosswise into half-moon-shaped segments, each 1/2-inch thick.
  2. Transfer chopped cucumber to a medium-sized mixing bowl; add salt.
  3. After 10 to 15 minutes, pour out excess water, and dry cucumber pieces with a paper towel.
  4. Add white vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil; stir to combine, and allow to marinate for 15 minutes.
