Cucumber Salad Asian

Cucumber Salad which typically comes with our order of Chicken Satay.  It is so light and refreshing.  The perfect combination of sweet and sour.  Several Asian restaurants serve similar types of salad using the same vinaigrette, most commonly with grilled meat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cucumber peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, matchstick-julienned
  • 1/4 cup of thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup of rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of sugar (or Splenda equivalent for low carb diets)
  • 1 tsp. of thai chili garlic sauce
  • pinch of salt
