Crunchy, spicy, cool and sour this salad is the perfect side dish. It comes together in minutes and tastes great the next day. It’s super easy and the perfect pairing for grilled tofu or grilled chicken so make a batch and impress your friends at the next barbeque!
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Roughly chop your cucumber into large chunks. Lightly sprinkle a small amount of salt on the cucumbers, toss together and set aside.
Add grated ginger and garlic to a bowl with Rice vinegar, add soy sauce okazu chili oil and combine.
Drain any water from the cucumber. Add the sauce mixture and cilantro to the cucumber in a large bowl and mix together vigorously with your hands.You want to break the flesh of the cucumber down to increase the absorption of the dressing and amplify the flavors.
Once fully combined garnish with toasted sesame seeds and serve.
Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Udon noodles are the best. They're a lot of fun to eat and their thickness really helps to hold onto all that yummy sauce. They also make for the easiest dinners, and are a great way of using up whatever veggies you have in the fridge.

Homemade salad dressings are the best! Not only are they healthier than store-bought dressings, but we get to know exactly what's going into them. We made this super easy miso dressing, and the flavours were just exceptional, we had to share it with you guys! The ginger, tahini and miso create the most flavourful experience.
