Sweet and Tangy Cucumber Salad

Morsels of Life - Sweet and Tangy Cucumber Salad - A simple and refreshingly tangy cucumber salad with rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame, and lots of flavor.

I'm sure just about everyone's had something like this cucumber salad. It's one of those dishes you always hear about mom or grandma passing down. An easy and tasty "no-fail" recipe. Simple enough to make frequently and tasty enough you'll want to! Bring this simple and refreshing cucumber salad to any barbeque, cookout, or gathering, and all your friends will love you even more! (Results not guaranteed.)

You can just throw everything together and serve. I also like to let all the flavors mix and meld so you'll get more flavor in each bite. Just throw everything together like usual, give it a good shake (or stir) and stick it in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

  5. Oooo, this does look good, CJ! I am ready for these kinds of cool as a cucumber salads! ;) My favorite handed down salad-type recipe from my grandmother was her homemade slaw, and she made some kind of a relish thing called chow chow that I loved, too. It involved canning, and I don't can, so I don't get it any more. Thank you for sharing your cucumber salad with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned! :)

  7. This is such a different take on cucumber salad than I am used to (most of the ones up here use yogurt or mayo) but I am loving the sound of these flavors together. It sounds so nice and light too.
