Spicy Cucumber Salad

9 09 2011

Maybe I’m just being lazy, but everything I’ve been making this week has been easy.  Perhaps too easy.

Anyway, this is another easy dish that was created with goods from the farm market.  (FIVE field cucumbers for $1!  I felt the people in the IKEA commercial where the woman gets in the car like she’s just stolen something they need to make a big get-away.)

Spicy Cucumber Salad

3 small cucumbers

1 lime

1/4 tsp chili flakes

1 tsp sesame oil

Peel and seed your cucumber if you’re using field cucumbers, just seed the cucumber if you’re using English cucumbers (with their soft skin).  Thinly slice the cucumbers and place into a mixing bowl.

Squeeze the juice of one lime over the cucumbers.

Stir in chili flakes and sesame oil.

It’s pretty good straight away, but it will get spicier if you allow it to rest in the fridge for at least an hour.

Done!

If you’d like to get fancy, you could serve this salad with some cashews or peanuts on top.
