Chilled Sweet and Sour Cucumber Noodles

If you're using a spiralizer instead of a mandoline, simply twist the cucumber into the spiralizer to form noodles.” Kelly


2 medium cucumbers, peeled

1/2 cup diced red onion

3/4 cup rice vinegar

2 1/2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

1 1/2 teaspoons white sesame seeds


Attach the julienne blade to the mandoline and adjust it to the 1/8-inch-thick setting.

Applying medium pressure, carefully run one of the cucumbers down the blade to form noodles, slicing until you reach the core.

Rotate the cucumber a quarter turn and continue slicing and rotating until you've cut the entire 

Repeat the slicing process with the second cucumber then transfer the cucumber noodles to a 
medium bowl.

Add the red onion, rice vinegar, 1/4 cup water, sugar and crushed red pepper flakes (optional) 
to the bowl.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the cucumber noodles for a minimum of 2 
hours, stirring occasionally, until chilled.

While the noodles are chilling, toast the sesame seeds in a small saucepan over low heat until 
golden brown.

When ready to serve, use tongs or a slotted spoon to transfer the noodles to serving plates and 
top with the toasted sesame seeds.
