This light salad manages to make a boring cucumber so much more appealing. The dressing pickles the cucumber slightly, drawing the liquid out of it, so don't make it more than 4 hours ahead of serving or it will loose its crunch entirely.

2 tbsp (25 mL) white vinegar
1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar
1 tbsp (15 mL) sesame oil
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1 English cucumber

1. Combine vinegar, sugar, sesame oil and salt.

2. Slice cucumber thinly and toss with dressing. Let sit for 30 minutes to marinate before serving.

Serves 4 as a small side dish
