Ingredients

  • 1 large English seedless cucumber, very thinly sliced
  • ¼ of a sweet onion very thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill or ½ teaspoon dried dill weed
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Gently toss together all of the ingredients until everything is evenly coated. Put in a container with a tight fitting lid and refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving. This keeps well, refrigerated for up to 5 days. Gently toss again before serving.

Notes

I use a mandoline to slice my cucumber and onion paper thin. If this is not available to you, use the sharpest knife you can and slice as thinly as is possible. It will still be great if you can't get paper thin slices, it just won't be quite as delicate.
