Cucumber and Prune Carpaccio

It’s so hot! All I want to do is sit around and eat fresh fruits and veggies… or both at the same time with a delicious miso-ginger dressing. Yum! This is completely improvised, but so ridiculously simple and flavourful. It takes 5 minutes to prepare, so you don’t miss any of that amazing sun and nature going on outside.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 cucumber
  • 3 prunes (peaches and nectarines would work too)
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated

Here is what you do:

  1. Clean the cucumber and prunes and cut them in thin slices. Place in a dish.
  2. Mix the miso, sesame oil, vinegar, syrup, water, and ginger. Make sure the miso is fully dissolved. Pour over your salad and enjoy!

This is the perfect flavour combination: sweet, salty, sour and full of umami. The textures are also wonderful: crunchy cucumber contrasts with the smoothness of the prunes. Let me know if you try it out!
