Cucumber Salad with Ginger & Garlic

This Asian inspired salad is cool and refreshing on a hot summer day. It’s a perfect accompaniment to homemade veggie sushi rolls.

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (optional)
