Sesame Soy Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger

Cucumber Avocado Salad

  • 2 large English cucumbers
  • 1 avocado, peeled and cut in half
  • 4 scallions, chopped green and white parts
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped

Optional toppings

  • Crushed peanuts
  • Red pepper flakes


  • mandoline


Prepare the dressing:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the toasted sesame oil, olive oil, honey, rice vinegar, soy sauce, minced fresh ginger, minced fresh garlic, salt, and warm water. The warm water helps the honey melt into the other ingredients. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.

Prepare the salad:

  • Using a mandoline, slice the cucumbers into thin even pieces.
  • Add them to a bowl.
  • Next, you’ll add the chopped cilantro, sesame seeds, and scallions. Toss until well combined. Refrigerate this portion of the salad until you are ready to use it.

Assemble the dish:

  • Toss the cucumber mixture with the dressing, reserving some for the center of the avocado.
  • Add the dressed cucumbers to a plate along with half of a peeled and pitted avocado.
  • Add the reserved dressing in the center of the avocado, where the pit once rested.
  • Next, top the salad with crushed peanuts and a few red pepper flakes.
  • Enjoy!
