The summer season is a great time to introduce simple and lighter meals to your table, but without skimping out on the nutrients you need to keep you active while you’re on the go. A quick but flavorful salad is a great way to do that.
Cucumbers are delicious anytime, but their cool, crispy charms are especially welcome in the sweltering heat of summer. In this Asian salad, they’re flavored with a hint of sesame and chopped peanuts. This salad has been served to crowds of people over the years, and it’s always gotten rave reviews.
