This salad pairs so well with Sesame Peanut Noodles and Pork Kebabs with cumin and chile – you will love it!
4 scallions (green onions)
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 minces garlic clove
1 tsp each: sesame oil, chili oil and kosher salt
1/4 tsp brown sugar
1 thinly sliced serrano chile (remove seeds)
1 english cucumber, thinly sliced
1 bunch cilantro
1/2 head iceberg lettuce
Finely slice scallions, reserving white parts. Soak white parts in cold water 15 minutes, drain well and combine with finely sliced green parts.
Wash cilantro and lettuce well. Spin dry – roughly chop cilantro, removing long stems and thinly slice lettuce. Add to bowl with scallions, chile and cucumber.
Mix together rice vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, chili oil, salt and sugar. Mix well until sugar is dissolved!
Toss dressing with salad (lightly) immediately before serving.
