Quick Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

I needed a quick side to go with the Baked Chicken Nuggets, so I decided to try to make a quick cucumber salad (a la the ones I love at Thai restaurants). It turned out really good! Not the best I’ve ever had, but really good and super easy for a quick-thinking side dish.
In a medium bowl, whisk together 3T seasoned rice wine vinegar, 1T mirin, 1T honey and a healthy pinch of red pepper flakes. Add in one thinly sliced seedless cucumber and 2 thinly sliced scallions (or a bit of sliced red onion or shallot). Toss together and enjoy!

Check out my post [http://angelicasfoodcorner.blogspot.com/2010/05/thai-cucumber-salad.html] for a similar recipe. It might be more along the lines of what you’re used to from Thai restaurants.

I love having cucumbers at home! The salad looks so good and fresh!
Angelica – that’s awesome! I’ll have to try yours out next time. Mine was good but not the best I’ve ever had. I love how easy it is to throw that together, though 🙂
