My Japanese cucumber vine has been doing well lately. I’ve made a fake cucumber kimchi that my family loves. When I make it next, I’ll take pics and post the ‘recipe.’
Today, I wanted to try something different and gimmesomeoven’s Thai Cucumber Salad blog post came through my email inbox. I love Thai food and I had a cucumber I needed to do something with so it was the perfect time to try this recipe. First I made the dressing. I adapted the recipe slightly.
juice from one fresh lemon
2 T olive oil
1 T fish sauce
2 T rice vinegar
2 cloves minced garlic
1 T locally made honey
1 T shoyu
sprinkling of garlic shichimi togarashi
After mixing the dressing ingredients in a bowl, I added the following things to the dressing.
one cucumber, halved, seeded, and sliced
about half of a thinly sliced sweet onion
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
That is it! I chilled the mixture in the refrigerator and served it for dinner later that evening. So quick and easy. Living Hilo Style–Garden to Table.
What great cucumbers!
It felt great to grow, harvest, and eat it!
