When I need to make one more dish for dinner, a simple salad is my first option. This Cucumber & Tuna Salad is quick & easy. I cut the Cucumber in a fancy way today, in the same way as Cucumber Snake.
1 large Continental Cucumber
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 can (95g) Tuna *drained, I used Tuna in Springwater
1 tablespoon Toasted Sesame Seeds *lightly ground
1/2 to 1 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
1 to 2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
1 teaspoon Chilli Garlic Sauce *OR Chilli Flakes and Garlic
- Cut Cucumber in bite-size pieces. Sprinkle Salt and toss to combine, then set aside. *Note: The Cucumber in the above photo was cut in the same way as Cucumber Snake.
- To make Dressing, toast Sesame Seeds in a saucepan until golden, then lightly grind until aromatic. Then add all other ingredients, and mix well.
- Combine the Cucumber, drained Tuna and the Dressing. Serve immediately.
Thank you very much for the recipe! I tried it for the first time last week and I fell in love… the flavours all go so well together and the crispiness of the cucumbers is what takes it to the next level. I made it for my mom, a massive salad lover, and I think it’s now her new obsession! Thank you Hiroko!
Simone, thank you so much for the comment. Knowing that someone cooked my salad and enjoyed it, I feel absolutely over the moon.
