Asian Cucumber Salad - a simple, refreshing salad for your afternoon snacking or as a light lunch! With cucumber noodles, julienned bell peppers, and that delicious Asian-inspired sauce, welcome in the warm summer weather with a burst of flavor!
In a small bowl, mix together all of your sauce ingredients and set aside.
Chop the bell peppers into fine juliennes. Transfer the bell peppers to a bowl with ice water and let sit for 15 minutes so they become crispy and bright. Then take them out and lightly pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
Using a julienne peeler or spiralizer, shred the cucumber into long noodles. Make the cucumber noodles when you’re ready to eat otherwise they will leave water and become soggy.
In a serving bowl, mix together the cucumber noodles, bell peppers, and sauce.
Garnish with crushed cashews, peanuts, and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
