Cucumber & Carrot Salad with Sesame Lime Dressing

cucumber carrot 2

Today is very rainy and humid in our area. The sun is supposed to pop out later today just in time for dinner. We are planning to BBQ, so I made this asian inspired ‘Cucumber & Carrot Salad with Sesame Lime Dressing’ to go with our grilled chicken. It is very easy to put together and full of nutrient rich ingredients. The dressing has that rich nutty aroma and flavor from the toasted sesame oil and a nice acidity from the lime juice.
