Cool Asian Cucumber Salad

Easy recipe
Cool Asian Cucumber Salad

Why will you love this Cool Asian Cucumber Salad? 

1 – It’s ridiculously easy to make – it comes together in five to ten minutes.

2 – It makes a great summer side dish for fish or a light sandwich.

3 – It contains just a few clean ingredients and tastes great!

This Cool Asian Cucumber Salad is something I know I can make on a work day when I have no time but need a quick lunch, I’m always looking to incorporate more vegetables into my meals so I will throw this together along with a light sandwich and voila, I’m eating in 10 minutes.

To add some zip to this little unsuspecting salad add a little of this chili oil or something similar.

This dish would be great served with the Grilled Chicken and Vegetables.
