Asian Cucumber Salad is easy and a refreshing salad that pairs well with meat, seafood or fish. This salad is simple and quick to make within minutes. Asian Cucumber Salad is best chilled before serving.
It is lent season and this delicious salad can be eaten by itself or have it with fish or seafood on the days you can’t have meat.
Fortunately, I was able to get canned goods on the 2nd week of February before all the panic buying happened which is understandable.
My last grocery trip was Monday. I realized I didn’t have coconut milk, normally I have at least 6 cans stored. So, I have a month’s worth of food in the freezer, mostly leftovers from my food blogging and another month’s worth of canned goods.
I love bread and I have 2 loaves. Once I run out, I’ll be making my own bread. I have no plans on being out the next few weeks. I have everything I need, so far.
No, I didn’t store any vegetables, just spinach and lettuce. I got this cucumber on my last trip Monday.
Like I said, it will be hard to cook for Lent this season. Supplies will be limited. You’ll will see a lot of sardine recipe.
Anyway, if you happen to have a cucumber, this is something you can whip up in minutes. Pair it with your canned sardines.
Everyone stay safe, eat healthy and get enough sleep.
Tips in Making Asian Cucumber Salad
Select cucumber that is firm, not bruised.
No need to peel cucumber but I like it peeled alternately.
Just use enough vinegar when making cucumber salad. Cucumber will release more liquid after an hour.
Chill in fridge before serving.
You can store leftover for another day but it will not be as crisp.
