I love sweet-and-sour cucumbers. Whenever we go to a Thai restaurant, I pretty much eat all the cucumbers that come on the side, and drink up the juice afterward before I even start my main course. Sometimes I let Dino eat a few, too. So putting something like this together at home is nice, because I can make a lot and then I have enough to share. You know, because I’m generous like that 😉 This is a super quick way to make a crisp and tangy accompaniment for any meal. It was great!
1 English cucumber, cut in half lengthwise and sliced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon sesame oil
kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
In a bowl, whisk together rice vinegar, lime juice, honey, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Add cucumber slices and stir to coat. Let sit for at least 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve.
