The unofficial start to summer has arrived, and all I want to be eating these days is watermelon…and other freshness, like cucumbers.
Consider this sesame-seasoned cuke dish as the perfect picnic bring-along or refreshing side dish. It would pair well with most Asian-inspired meals, like soba noodle salads, kimchi fried rice, or tofu banh mi. It’d also make a nice addition to a wholesome grain bowl.
Edamame packs an extra crunch and a touch of protein alongside the thinly sliced cucumbers, while chili flakes add both spice and color. Be sure to leave a little time at the end for the flavors to mingle.
If you don’t have sesame seeds, crushed peanuts might make for a tasty topping, too!
