Work has been tough lately so I've been in no mood to cook. Tonight I made the following salad and some dim sum - fast and tasty and I don't have to slave over a stove.
Use a mandolin to slice (length-wise) three or four persian cucumbers. Add a bunch of cilantro and mint, chopped. Top with a dressing made of evoo, rice wine vinegar, dash of sugar, a thumbs worth of peeled and grated ginger (I add more to make it really hot), 1 finely chopped stalk of lemongrass, salt, pepper, and a dash of soy sauce.
Easy, doesn't require measurements and looks beautiful.
I'm back... I think...
