Cucumber Scallion Salad {5 Minute Recipe}

Author Rebecca Lindamood


  • 1 large English cucumber
  • 3 scallions green onions, roots trimmed and discarded
  • 1/3 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar


  • Julienne the English cucumber lengthwise so you have long, thin, matchstick strips. Transfer them from the cutting board to a bowl. Use a sharp knife to cut the green onion lengthwise into long, thin strips as well, then cross cut them to a length of about 3 inches. Add those to the cucumber strips in the bowl along with the remaining ingredients. Toss to coat and let stand at least 10 minutes before serving.
