  • 2 English cucumbers washed & spiralized (or thinnly sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger peeled
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • sesame seeds as garnishment


  • Wash and spiralize the cucumbers. If you don’t have a spiralizer, then you can simply thinly slice the cucumbers.
  • Add the cucumbers to a colander and sprinkle with salt. Leave the colander in the sink and allow to sit for 30 minutes. The salt will help the cucumbers shed water.
  • Rinse the cucumbers and pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Add the ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, tamari, sesame oil, maple syrup and crushed red pepper to a mini food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Combinethe cucumbers and dressing. Serve immediately, sprinkling with sesame seeds.
