Now this is one addictive cucumber salad! And what I love about it, is it is super quick and easy to throw together. And you can add this salad to a variety of dishes for the week.

Ingredients you will need:

  1. Persian cucumbers
  2. Sesame oil
  3. Coconut aminos (substitute soy sauce)
  4. Chili powder

This salad is super simple to prepare. First, slice the cucumbers and add to a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix, and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

What to serve this with:

This cucumber salad can be enjoyed by itself as a snack or used as a garnish to a variety of dishes. But I personally find it pairs best with some delicious air fried teriyaki chicken bowls, check it out here. 

How to store:

I like to store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and use within 2 days. Because the longer they sit in the refrigerator they will loose the crunch factor they have on the first day they are prepped.
