Cucumber, Avocado, sesame seeds A very simple salad to toss together. You can add fish or chicken if you'd like. It is delicious! Enjoy!

Sesame Cucumber and Avocado Salad

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, plus more to taste (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, plus more for garnish (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, plus more to taste
  • 1 ½ teaspoons soy sauce OR tamari, plus more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon red-pepper flakes, plus more to taste
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 pound cucumbers (such as Persian or English), trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground black pepper

In a small bowl, combine the sesame oil, rice vinegar, sesame seeds, sugar, soy sauce and red-pepper flakes. Add 1 tablespoon of water and whisk until blended. Taste, and adjust seasonings. (Dressing should taste acidic, a little sweet and a little salty.)

Halve the avocados and discard the pits. Using a small paring knife, carefully score the avocado flesh into ½-inch cubes, avoiding cutting through the skin. Use a large spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh, as close to the skin as possible, into a large bowl. Add the dressing; toss gently. Add the cucumbers and green onions and toss everything together. Season with salt and black pepper, top with more sesame seeds, and serve immediately.
