Super easy and delicious, this Asian inspired cucumber salad is done in 5 minutes. The easy way to add some more veggies into your diet! Very kid friendly 🙂 



1 large continental cucumber (or any other cucumber you have in the fridge)

4 tbsp of rice vinegar

2 tbsp of gluten-free soy sauce, I use tamari

1 tsp sesame oil

1/2 tsp organic brown sugar

1/4 tsp chilly flakes (optional and not used in the recipe featured in this post)

2 tsp toasted sesame seeds


First, wash and cut the cucumber into bite-size pieces. Put in a bowl.

Combine the rice vinegar, gluten-free soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil in a glass jar or a salad dressing mixer and shake well.

Add marinade to the cucumber and mix to combine.

Sprinkle sesame seeds over the cucumber. Serve!
