Spicy Asian Cucumbers Recipe
Cucumbers are tossed with Asian-inspired seasonings and marinated for a great side dish to serve cold.
Sliced cucumbers are tossed in a sesame-chili vinaigrette for a simple Japanese-inspired salad.
8 8 17 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/228067/spicy-asian-cucumbers/ ... First impression, sweet; second, salty; third, spicy; fourth on, salty. Sometimes I think I know what I'm doing so eventhough the recipe said to not rinse the cucs, I did & it's still salty - soy sauce. I like soy sauce & I'll finish these, but I'm disappointed.
Good starter recipe! I had 5 cucumbers about to go bad so I decided to make this I had everything but the spicy oil so I used chili sauce instead ! Was still salty even with 5 cucumbers but totally amazing taste!! Also instead of slicing the cucumber into chunks I did more of thin cucumber fries!
3.9.17 Used low-sodium soy sauce, but I know the sodium is still high, otherwise, this recipe breaks down pretty well nutritionally. I may have had a tough-skinned cuke, but in the future, I will peel the cucumbers, the skin was just too chewy. This had a nice fresh taste and a good balance of heat. Do allow time for this to chill, as the flavor definitely improves. Other than the two comments above, wouldn't change a thing, we enjoyed these cucumbers as written.
Thank you for sharing this. Officially my favorite way of making anything with cucumbers.
Very good! Substituted white vinegar for rice vinegar, otherwise made as written.
This simple cucumber salad with ginger and lime will be a refreshing side to any Asian meal.
This spicy cucumber salad is a Korean restaurant favorite!
