Marinated Cucumber Salad


September 17, 2008

  • Makes: Serves 4-6.


1/2 sweet onion

1 Tbsp. vinegar

1 English cucumber, thinly sliced

1 small carrot, coarsely grated

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

2 Tbsp. rice vinegar

1 Tbsp. sugar or honey

1 Tbsp. sesame oil

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 squirt hot chili paste (the stuff in the squeeze bottle)


1Put the onion in a medium bowl, cover it with cold water, add the vinegar and let it sit for 15 minutes (this will mellow out the onion a bit); drain well and add the cucumber and grated carrot.

2In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, garlic and chili paste, stir with a fork and pour over the cucumber mixture. Serve right away, or let it marinate for an hour or two.
