Mound of cucumber salad with lemon garnish

Crunchy and Refreshing

Cucumbers are delicious anytime, but their cool, crispy charms are especially welcome in the sweltering heat of summer. In this Asian salad, they’re flavored with a hint of sesame and chopped peanuts. We have served this salad to crowds of people over the years, and it’s always gotten rave reviews.
