Cucumber Salad

I tried this simple recipe that was posted on Good Dinner Mom and absolutely loved it. There's something special about recipes that are passed down generations and have a great story behind them. Try it out and let us know what you thought. 


  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled if desired, sliced very thinly
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste


  1. Slice cucumbers and place on paper towel to remove some of the moisture
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all other ingredients and add cucumbers. Stir to coat.
  3. Taste and add more crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
  4. The salad may be made up to 4 hours ahead of serving but should be served the day it is made.
