method

   In a medium mixing bowl, combine salt, vinegar, coconut aminos, honey, and sesame seed oil (if using). Whisk until the honey has dissolved.

   With a sharp knife or mandoline, slice cucumber into very thin rounds. Add cucumber to the dressing.  Toss and allow to set for a few minutes so the flavors can combine. Serve immediately.

tips: some delicious add-ins to make the salad more robust: sliced tomatoes, avocados, and a sprinkle of soft goat cheese.
