We visited our local area farm stands and enjoyed the beauty of all the fresh vegetables that were the last of the harvest.
We came home with fresh peppers and squash and lots of cucumbers. It seemed there was a bumper crop of cucumbers this year. I have some in the fridge from my daughter's garden and bought more at the farm stand.
I needed to make a few different dishes to use all the cukes. This one recipe I'm sharing is an Asian influenced marinade that can be used to dress the cucumbers for a salad or use the cucumbers to add crunch to sandwiches and burgers.
Honey Soy Dressing/Marinade
- 1 TBL honey
- 1 TBL soy sauce (low sodium)
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- pinch of salt
- black pepper
- 2 or 3 large cucumbers sliced
- Add the ingredients (except cucumbers) in a medium bowl and whisk to blend.
- Next add in the cucumbers and stir to blend the dressing well with the cucumbers.
- Let the cukes marinate at least 20 minutes before serving.
- When ready to serve drain the dressing from the bowl and then serve.
