Cucumbers in sesame oil

So simple, so good.  Enough said.

Cucumbers in Sesame Oil

English cucumber
1 shallot, minced
1 T canola oil
2 T rice vinegar
1 t sugar
1 t sesame oil
Salt to taste
Sesame seeds

Peel strips down the length of the cuke if you want to make it look pretty, and slice it thinly.  Whisk together the rest of the ingredients except for the seeds and pour over the cucumber slices.  Allow to sit at room temperature and marinate for awhile if possible.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.

I have a similar recipe, but without sesame oil and seeds - which I love.

Thank you! I'll be trying this.
