2 English cucumbers, finely sliced

3/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

dash of red pepper flakes

1-2 tbsp sesame seeds

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, water, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, oil, and red peppers flakes (if using) until evenly incorporated. Pour the dressing over the slo Ed cucumbers, tossing to coat. Let the cucumbers ‘marinate’, chilled, for about an hour.

  1. This sounds like such a refreshing dish that is quick to make! I love that it retains a bit go crunch and crispiness. With a GF soy sauce this is one I can try. Happy FF, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
