This easy, refreshing, crisp Asian Cucumber Salad is perfect for summer!
Place sliced cucumbers into a fine-mesh strainer suspended inside a medium sized bowl. Season with 1 teaspoon sea salt. Toss thoroughly to combine. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes up to overnight to drain the cucumbers of excess moisture.
When cucumbers have been drained of excess moisture, remove from fridge and transfer to a clean kitchen towel. Pat dry. Add the cucumbers, red onions, scallions and cilantro to a medium sized bowl. Add half of the sauce and toss to coat.
For best results (optional), place the salad in the refrigerator and allow the flavors to develop, for 30 minutes up to 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
When ready to serve, taste and add more of the sauce as desired. Garnish with sesame seeds, peanuts and avocado if using. Enjoy!
