Cucumber Sesame Salad

Cucumber Sesame Salad - find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

If I made something like Chicken Teriyaki or Cracklin’ Chicken with rice, I serve it with a quick Cucumber Sesame Salad.  It’s the first thing I start making so it has time to pickle/marinate while I have the rest of dinner going. 

Just clear off the cutting board and do some chop therapy on some cucumbers and green onions!

It’s also a jumping point recipe!  I sometimes add avocado (if I’m eating it), spicy garlic chili, cilantro, and even rice!

The best part is that my family eats it up every time I make it so I never have leftovers and they’ve EATEN SALAD without complaining. 

Win-win!
