Cucumber Salad-Like the one at Thai restaurants

Thai restaurants never serve enough of the cucumber salad. I know it's supposed to be a palate cleanser but I always want more! Now you can make your own, and eat all that you want . . . just as long as you have enough cucumbers.

Thai Style Cucumber Salad

1 cucumber sliced
2 tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 carrot julienned
½ tsp sesame oil
½ tsp sesame seeds to garnish
Half of a green onion to garnish

If you have a mandolin slicer this salad will be done in a snap but a knife will get the job done as well. Discard the ends of the cucumber and slice the cucumber thinly. Julienne the carrot and put both vegetables into a bowl.

To make the dressing, put sesame oil, sugar and rice wine vinegar into a small bowl and mix until sugar is completely dissolved. Pour dressing over the sliced cucumbers and carrots, garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds and eat your heart out. These calories won't go against you.
