Crunchy, good, and a great side to go along with a lot of recipes, this little salad recipe is great to have in your hip pocket (and in your fridge). Dashi powder is made from little bonito fish that have tons of umami, so it packs a lot of flavor, even in small amounts. But if you can’t find it, swap in a drop of fish sauce!
6 Persian cucumbers (about 1 pound), thinly sliced into rounds
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon hot sesame oil (we used Dynasty brand)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dashi powder
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
This easy hors d’oeuvres is SO good.
Caesar dressing: It's not just for salads anymore.
To enjoy year-’round—not just in the summer.
