Chilled Cucumber Salad

Standard

These chilled garlic soy cucumbers are a refreshing snack for any hot summer day! Make a batch to accompany your next summer meal!

Cucumbers are perfect as a light appetizer.  They’re refreshing, they aren’t too filling, and they taste surprisingly good.  Also, they’re really easy to make.  No stove required!  You may have seen chilled Cucumber Salad as an appetizer at a Chinese restaurant.  Now you can make your own!

Ingredients:

1-2 large seedless cucumbers

2-3 cloves of garlic

Soy sauce ( start with a 1/2 cup, then add to taste)

Rice vinegar (start with a 1/2 cup, then add to taste)

Chili oil (Optional, but delicious)

Directions:

1. Peel the cucumber first if you don’t like the skin.  Otherwise, just wash it, and then slice it into pieces 1/3-1/2 inches (or around 1 cm) thick.

2. Dice the cloves of garlic.

3. Put the garlic and the cucumber into a large bowl.  Add the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and chili oil to taste.

4. Toss gently.  That’s it!  You’re done!  Now enjoy!

Wasn’t that easy?
