Cold Sesame Cucumber Salad

20 Sep

Cold Sesame Cucumber NoodlesMmmm, tasty sesame noodles for a rainy day. Only a slight twist to make it slightly healthier. Cucumber!

Delicious, but then again, I love everything sesame-related.

Ingredients

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • pinch of ginger powder
  • pinch of cayenne
  • 1/2 packet soba noodles (optional)
  • Sesame or black sesame seeds, for garnish

Method

  • Peel and cut the seeds out of the cukes. Then peel and finely chop cukes into long strips, so they resemble long noodles. Cut the green onion into little rings.
  • Mix everything else in a small dish, mixing with a fork until smooth and add a splash of water if it’s a bit too thick.
  • Pour the sauce onto the cuke noodles (and cooked soba noodles, if that’s your style) and tosh until mixed evenly. Add the sesame seeds for pleasant garnishes on top. Mmmmm.
