RECIPE BY SHAUNA BRYNE
Simple, quick and absolutely delicious! This light salad is full of flavour and will be sure to become your go-to.
1 large cucumber
pinch of salt (optional)1–2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp coconut aminos seasoning
1 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp honey
1–2 cloves garlic, grated
1cm ginger, grated
1–2 tbsp chilli paste / sriracha
spring onions, sliced thinly
Lightly beat the whole cucumber with the back of a wooden spoon, allowing it to break open and soften, then roughly chop it up into bite-size cubes. (If you have time, smash and roughly chop the cucumber in advance and add a sprinkle of salt and leave for 15+ mins).
Toast the sesame seeds on a low heat, keeping an eye on these as they will start to brown quickly. Transfer
to a separate dish and let cool.
Add the coconut aminos, rice vinegar, sesame oil, honey, garlic, ginger and chilli paste to a bowl and mix to
make a dressing.
Add the dressing to the chopped cucumbers and gently mix together till well combined.
Top the dressed cucumber salad with the spring onions and toasted sesame seeds.
