With a water content of nearly 96% and its ability to help reduce swelling, cucumber is one of the best vegetables for the summer. Follow this quick and easy recipe to get a flavourful side dish for lunch or dinner.
2 medium cucumbers
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon stevia
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
Peel the cucumbers leaving alternating green stripes. Cut them in half lengthwise. Using a food processor or a knife, cut into very thin slices. Use a paper towel to remove any excess water.
Add the sesame seeds in a small pan over low heat and stir constantly for about 2 minutes until golden.
Combine the vinegar, stevia, and salt in a bowl, and stir.
Add the cucumber and sesame seeds to the bowl and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
Note: If you don’t have rice vinegar, use apple cider vinegar instead.
