Gingered Cucumbers

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

You will find this unique dish will draw all kinds of compliments.

Yield: Serves 8

  • 2 medium cucumbers
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • ½ cup rice vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger



Score the cucumber peels by running the tines of a fork down them lengthwise. Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, remove and discard the seed, and thinly slice. Combine the cucumbers and salt in a medium bowl, mix well, and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Drain the cucumbers, squeeze out any excess liquid, and set aside.

In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds until lightly browned. Add the vinegar, sugar, and ginger, and bring to a boil pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumbers, and let it cool. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or up to 2 days.


Serve cold, like pickles!
