Asian-Mediterranean Cucumber Slaw Salad

About This Recipe


  • 1 cucumber
  • Soy sauce and white vinegar (enough to cover the cucumber, use at an approximately 3:1 ratio of 3 tablespoons of soy sauce for every 1 tablespoon of vinegar)
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons hummus
  • 1 to 2 cups spinach per person
  • 1 to 2 cups string beans or snap peas
  • Almonds and/or sesame seeds as a garnish


  1. 1

    Ideally, the night before, dice the cucumber and marinade it in a mixture of the soy sauce and white vinegar. I used three tablespoons of soy sauce for every tablespoon of white vinegar. Cover the cucumber with the liquid.

  2. 2

    When you're ready to eat, wash and dry the spinach. Place on two (or one) plates. Place the cucumber slaw on the leaves. Drizzle with leftover soy-vinegar marinade.

  3. 3

    Scoop the hummus onto the salad. Top with string beans, almonds, and/or sesame seeds. Drizzle some soy sauce on the salad.
