Spicy Asian Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Cilantro

Spicy Asian Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Cilantro

by Pam on July 8, 2014

I was serving some Asian tacos for dinner and wanted a fresh and healthy side dish with a kick. I adapted a recipe I found on Food and Wine to suit our tastes. This salad was flavorful, crunchy, sweet, and spicy and we all loved it. My son thought it was spicy but ate every bite and I loved the crisp cucumbers with a kick and felt  it paired nicely with the tacos. My daughter and husband loved this salad and fought over the last of it.

Combine the vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper together in a bowl. Whisk well. Add the cucumber,grape tomato slices, cilantro, and serrano chile slices into the bowl. Gently toss to coat evenly. Let sit for 10 minutes for flavors to mingle tossing every once in a while. Enjoy.
