Asian Cucumber Salad

Last week, I featured the tastiest (and easiest!) Sweet Chili & Lime Salmon, and this week I’m pairing it with an Asian Cucumber Salad that complements it perfectly.


Check out this quick video that shows you just how simple it is to make  – recipe inside!

The Paderno Spiralizer is back and in full force with this light and refreshing cucumber salad. I think this salad tastes best when the cucumbers are super thin, so I decided to try out my spiralizer for this and it worked great. I simply swapped out the noodle blade for this thinner/longer blade and the result was exactly what I was looking for.
