How to cook Thai cucumber salad
White sesame seeds are dried a little in a pan without oil until a faint cream shade appears, and black sesame is left as it is.
We cut cucumbers with thin long or medium straws, without cutting off their skin (if the cucumbers are young and still tender). With the "age" of cucumbers, the peel still needs to be cut off - it is quite tough and will spoil the overall impression of the salad.
Since cucumbers are minced finely, it is very convenient for such a salad to float unused in conservation (the so-called "substandard") or "overgrown cucumbers". In the salad, they will look like you need - juicy and appetizing!
For about the same length and thickness of straw, we cut both kinds of sweet pepper, for the coloriness of the salad - red pepper and ordinary pepper, yellow. We put everything in a salad bowl.
Salad dressing will consist of honey, soy sauce, butter and lime juice. With this combination of ingredients in the salad dressing will be the most refreshing! If you want to add something spicy, you can add red pepper to it.
We mix everything in one small bowl and stir it so that the oil spreads over the liquid and forms some kind of emulsion. Pour lime dressing into salad.
Add to the vegetables chopped dill or cilantro. We pour white and black sesame, leaving a little for decoration for serving.
Mix all the ingredients and arrange in portioned salad bowls or in one large common dish. It turns out in all senses "light" salad, which does not take much time to cook, and the calories are almost weightless!
