All it took was:
Cucumbers- peeled, seeded, and julienned
1 oz. Tobiko ( those yummy flying fish eggs)
And for the dressing: This is where I'm the worst! I don't measure anything, just do it to taste. I guess like making a vinaigrette? I used mostly Ponzu, a splash of both sesame oil and rice vinegar, a spoonful of white sugar, pepper and I sprinkled the sesame seeds.
Poured it over the cucumbers,And there you have it. A yummy, refreshing and speedy dinner:) and most importantly? All done with one pot of boiling water:)
Then topped it with the Tobiko:) **I got my Tobiko at AJ's at the sushi bar:) and yes, a little pricey, but sooo delish!!
Yummy yummy yummy!!
Then I moved on to dinner. Where I was hoping to use the other 7000 lbs. of cucumbers:) Enter- Trader Joe's rice sticks. You can get them in the pasta section, and this yummy recipe is on the back:)
1/2 c. mint leaves, roughly chopped
1/2 c. basil leaves, roughly chopped
2 c. cooked meat ( I used shrimp)
** I added bean sprouts too:)
Oh and look at this sweet little baby that was living in my mint! Now that's organic!! :)
Put all your chopped ingredients and cooked meat in a bowl, and pour hot noodles on top. The heat from the noodles wilts the greens perfectly:)
