Ingredients

    Vegetables
  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 2 carrots
    Sauce
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 4 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
    Garnish
  • toasted sesame seeds and chili, to taste



Instructions

  1. Peel two cucumbers and score with a fork: this creates a nice patterned edge. Slice in half lengthwise and then slice into small half-moon pieces. Peel carrots (discard peel) and then create thin slivers with your vegetable slicer. Combine ingredients for sauce in a large bowl. Stir, then add the vegetables and toss to coat. Let marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Serve topped with sesame seed and red chili.
