Asian Cucumber Salad is a refreshing and vibrant dish that bursts with flavor. Crisp cucumber slices are tossed in a tangy dressing made with soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and a hint of sweetness from sugar. Garnished with sesame seeds and chopped green onions, this salad is the perfect balance of sweet, salty, and savory.
