My new summer favorite - thinly sliced cucumber salad with a soy sauce-rice vinegar-honey-sesame oil dressing. Crunchy, tangy, sweet and HOT. Well, maybe it's just me or my upbringing in Singapore, but when it's hot outside, a little bit of heat in your food helps cool you down! Definitely give this salad a try. It's got the perfect balance of flavors. If you do have some dressing leftover, save it! It tastes great on sautéed or fried tofu or tempeh or on cold noodles. It's highly satisfying.
Looking for a little kick of spice to your summer salad? This chili oil dressing provides just the right amount of heat on those sweltering summer days.
