DRESSING

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • Dash of crushed red pepper

SALAD

  • 1 pound English cucumbers (spiralized or sliced)
  • 2 carrots (spiralized or grated)
  • 2 medium scallions (thinly sliced)
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the tamari or soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, rice vinegar, and crushed red pepper.

Notes

This recipe is for 4 servings of Asian cucumber and vegetable salad.
To lower the sodium, reduce the amount of Tamari or soy sauce used. You can also use 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar and 2 tablespoons of water instead of 1/4 cup of rice vinegar.
Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Gently toss the vegetable salad before serving again.
