The first time I had this salad was at Jay & Kelly’s – they both were addicted to this ginger dressing and Kelly had come up with the idea for this beautiful salad. By shaving the cucumbers into ribbons, it provides a quick, easy elegance to any plate.
For portions, it’s about 1.5 cucumbers per two people.
Ribboned Ginger Cucumbers
- 2 Large Cucumber
- 10 small Carrots
- Asian Ginger Dressing
Cut the cucumbers into 6 inch sections. With a carrot peeler, begin peeling down from the top of the cucumber, creating long ribbon shaped pieces. Continue to shave the cucumbers and place into a large mixing bowl. Cut the carrots into small, coin-shape pieces and add to the cucumbers. Pour in the Asian Ginger Dressing, enough to coat each piece of cucumber. Serve cold.
