Cucumber Salad with Peanut Lime Vinaigrette


Cucumber Salad with Peanut Lime Vinaigrette

This crisp salad is so light and fresh. The cool cucumbers combine well with the tangy vinaigrette. With only a few ingredients, this salad comes together in just a few minutes. For an extra special flavor, use honey roasted peanuts and crush them yourself instead of the regular packaged chopped nuts.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 large English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (for garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts (for garnish)

Directions:

Combine the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a small bowl and place into the microwave for 1 minute to melt the peanut butter and dissolve the sugar. Stir and chill until ready use. If using fresh peanuts or honey roasted nuts, place them into a ziplock bag and crush using a mallet or meat pounder. Arrange cucumbers on a plate and top with dressing. Garnish with chopped nuts and cilantro, if desired.
