Cucumber Salad

This is another salad so basic that it scarcely needs a recipe.

Tangy Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers
1/4 Cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt
2 Tablespoons sesame seeds

Peeling long strips from the length of two cucumbers to leave a striped appearance. Slice in half. Scoop out the seeds. Cut the hollowed halves into thin slices. Squeeze in a clean towel or double layer of paper towel. Dissolve sugar and salt in vinegar in a medium bowl. Toss in cucumber and sesame seeds.

For another layer of flavor, briefly toast the sesame seeds first.
