I used my spiral slicer, but it is not required. Just cut thin slices or strips. The ribbony spiral cuts were rather fun to eat though...they can be swirled around a fork like spaghetti. Yes, I am still a kid like that. I let mine marinate a little too long and lost some crunchiness in the heat, but the salad was still great. (I was busy playing with the turkey patties I made to go with this. I will have that recipe tomorrow.)
Sesame Cucumber Salad
1/4 cup rice vinegar, unseasoned
1 1/2 tablespoons Braggs Liquid Aminos or Soy Sauce
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 packet sweetener
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
Slice the cucumber into thin slices. Combine the vinegar, Braggs or soy sauce, onion powder and sweetener. Pour over the cucumber slices and marinate for 20 minutes. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet or toaster oven until lightly browned. Let cool. When ready to serve, drain and discard marinade and sprinkle seeds over the cucumbers.

Served alongside a turkey burger, this makes for a great low cal lunch. Fast and lots of flavor. That is the Diner way!
