Cucumber-sesame salad

A super easy dish that you can serve with pita bread or vegetable tempura. The original recipe (which I found in the book “30 Minute Vegan” by Mark Reinfield and Jennifer Murray) calls for the use of onions but I have omitted them and the taste is still fine without them.

What you will need:
¼ cup sesame seeds (toasted or raw)
4 cups sliced cucumber (about 1 or 2 large cucumbers), peeled and cut about 2cms thick. You can seed if you want but I didn’t bother.
1 tbsp minced red onion (optional)
1 sheet nori, grated or cut finely (I used a pre-cut pack I found at the supermarket tin the Asian Foods section)
½ tsp sea salt
2 tbsp rice vinegar (found in the Asian Foods section of the supermarket)
Bag of salad greens

Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Serve in bowls lined with mixed salad greens.
