It's simple and quick and it's not your regular cucumber salad. Goes well as a sandwich filling or as a side to a soup. The dressing is a spin-off on a balsamic vinaigrette. The sesame seeds and soya sauce add the Asian touch. Chilli flakes add the oomph! So when you spot that lone cucumber in the vegetable crisper of your fridge, this is the recipe to go to!

Balsamic vinegar
1 tbsps
Light soy sauce
1 tbsps

1 tsp
Chilli flakes
Pinch
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp

Steps

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dressing with a fork.
  2. Toss in the cucumber slices and coriander. Mix well.
  3. Serve on a plate. Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds and a pinch of chili flakes for garnish.

I made this on the night before I was leaving for my holiday. Dinner was a quick tomato chutney (made with all the leftover tomatoes in the fridge ) spread on toasted whole grain bread slices and topped with the fantastic salad. I stopped at 3 slices, but from the way it tasted, I could have eaten more....even though the chilli flakes had my lips burning.

It's fat free, it's low cal and it's ready in 5 minutes. It's my HOT favourite!.
