Cucumber Salad

Spicy Cucumber Salad

Remember that time I forgot I had a blog for 13 days? Awkwaaaard.

Now that that’s out of the way, Cucumber Salad time!

Spicy Cucumber Salad

I love cucumber salad because I am a woman and we ladies love our cucumber salads. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m not. So probably don’t bother. Light and springy and crisp and tart and all those things and 2-4 more things, cucumber salad is one of those guilt-free dishes that you can sit down with and inhale like it’s…I don’t know, air? Sure. What I’m mostly getting at is I ate this all in one sitting. And now you can too!

Here’s how!

Spicy Cucumber Salad

serves 1 Molly



  • 3 tablespoons lite rice wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon minced ginger
  • ¼ – ½ teaspoon wasabi powder
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes


  • a cucumber, cut into slices and then cut into quarter slices
  • ½ – 1 tablespoons sesame seeds

why aren’t we eating yet? shouldn’t we be eating yet?

In a food processor or chopper or just in a bowl with a whisk, combine all the dressing ingredients. Adjust to your personal taste. Toss the cucumber quarters with the dressing. Either eat it now (topped with sesame seeds) or let it marinate overnight for a more tasty situation. Whatever you do, top with sesame seeds. For the love of glitter, cover with sesame seeds.


for the whole recipe (I used a full tablespoon of sesame seeds): 171 calories . 23g carbs . 6g fat . 4g protein . 2g fiber . 15g sugar



  1. I love your pictures ! What’s not to love about this cucumber salad? It’s everything I love! 😀

  2. I’m a fan. This looks delish. Cucumber and wasabi powder seems like a no fail combo

  3. Nice I will try it

  4. That is awkwaaaaaaaard

    Sorry to correct you, but I’m a lady, and I don’t like cucumber!
    Or rather, they don’t like me..
    One of those foods that make me sick to even smell..
    I might make this with raw courgette though! (Zuchinni to you!)
