Cucumber Salad with Vinegar-Soy Dressing

To be honest, I’ve never really liked cucumbers — until now. This light salad is both refreshing and flavorful, and makes the perfect side dish for dinner. The vinegar provides just enough kick to keep you reaching back for more, and the soy keeps blandness at bay. It can be made in less than 10 minutes, so there’s no excuse not to try it!

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Cucumber Salad Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.

Cucumber Salad Wine Pairing

Salads with vinegar-based dressings don't go well with wine. Albariño, torrontés, or riesling with seafood or poultry salads in mayonnaise- or cream-based dressings; pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillion, or grüner veltliner with salads with lemon juice-based dressings.
