Spicy cucumber salad with teriyaki, chili, and salted peanuts


A fresh and easy cucumber salad with a lot of flavour and spice. The salad can be served as a side dish for spring rolls, pasta dishes or other Asian inspired dishes.

Serves 4


  • 4 small or 1 big cucumber
  • ½ chilli (or depending on your taste)
  • 1 big clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil (of roasted sesame seeds)
  • ½ tablespoon of lime juice
  • A handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • A handful of salted peanuts



Cut the cucumber in thin slices, use for example a vegetable grater. Half the chilli, remove the seeds and chop finely. Crush the garlic. Mix a dressing out of the teriyaki sauce, chilli, garlic, sesame oil and lime juice.

Turn the cucumbers in the sauce before serving. Garnish with finely chopped coriander and salted peanuts.
