Wasabi Cucumber Salad

We've been running on triple digit weather here in the desert. This isn't unusual for Boise but the timing is quite unusual. Typically you can expect 110-115 degree weather for the month of August - but records were set this year when we were maintaining that level of heat as early as the first week of June.

If you're like me then that kind of weather really messes with your reggae eating habits. I can't even think about eating when I'm that hot. And that sick-to-my-stomach feeling is what made this little beauty of a dish a reality.

It's crisp, light, cool as a cucumber (ahem!) and packs a wicked kick if you're into that kinda food kink. So basically it's the perfect light meal for these crazy desert summers here in Boise.

1 cucumber, sliced thin
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp wasabi
a splash Bragg's Liquid Aminos
1/2 tsp raw sugar
green onions
  1. Mix together vinegar, wasabi, soy sauce and sugar.
  2. Toss cucumber, sesame seeds and wasabi mixture until combined well.
  3. Garnish with green onions
