Cold Cucumber Salad
35 mins (prep 10, cooking 25)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is it! And it's so easy! This is based on a recipe from Ken Hom's book, Quick & Easy Chinese Cooking. This salad transcends "Asian" -- we double it and serve this at any summer time BBQ and also bring it to potlucks. This is always a hit. Best of all, my picky DH loves it! In Ken Hom's own words, "Here is a really quick and easy recipe in which you salt the cucumbers and sweat the moisture from them for 15 minutes. They acquire a cooked texture without cooking and make a charming first course. They can also serve as a picnic dish or as part of a summer salad."
