  • Reviews

  • “My family liked this, and it was a great way to serve cucumbers without adding sugar. I *did* get the suspicious question “were cucumbers on sale?”, but I swear it wasn’t a complaint . I followed the recipe exactly. I even toasted the sesame seeds – well worth it.”

  • “This is delicious!Tastes very similar to the cucumbers at P.F. Changs!!!”

  • “These were yummy. I gave this 5 stars for my daughter who doesn’t like cucumbers ate these and requested them again. Thanks”

  • “I loved this cuke salad.I made it as written, halving the recipe.The only thing I may do different in the future is to peel the cucumber if they’re larger ones as the skin was a bit tough, but that was my problem.I love the color contrast of the dark and light green so I may just use smaller, more tender cucumbers.Or, maybe I’m just making too big of a deal about the skin altogether!!Anyway, thanks for this recipe KeyWee, I love the flavors in this salad :)”

  • “I really like this dish.I made it with lemon cukes (because my garden is bursting with them) and omitted the green onion and replaced with a little red onion (too lazy to go to the store).”

  • “Very nice, though I wish I could’ve refrigerated it longer! I was in a hurry, and made this for a quick bite. I scaled down to 1 serving, and used 1/8 tsp black pepper, which added a good amount of heat! I also used white onions and black sesame seeds, which are more flavourful than brown. This is a great way to use cucumbers, thanks!”

  • “My husband and father absolutely love this dish.It has just a little kick and it is very easy to make.I did one subsitution however.My husband and I are on a diet and aren’t allowed to use vegetable oil (we can use peanut, canola or olive oil).So, I used olive oil instead.I was affraid that the flavor wouldn’t come out right, but it came out absolutely delicious.”
