Tips for refining the taste

To enhance the flavor of your Asian cucumber salad and the recipe, start by lightly toasting the sesame seeds before sprinkling them over the salad. This intensifies their nutty aroma and adds a deep layer of flavor. For a fresh touch, you can add fresh coriander or mint, which are especially refreshing on warm days.
