A tasty dressing makes and already classic combination that much more irresistible. Avocado adds healthy, filling, good fat to this side and provides the perfect counter to the crisp juicy cucumber. Erythritol and Tamari replace sugar and soy sauce for those who are sensitive or calorie-counting. Toasted sesame oil and seeds deliver that smokey va va voom.





  1. Make the dressing: Place the sesame oil, rice vinegar, sesame seeds, erythritol, tamari and red-pepper flakes into a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of water and whisk until emulsified. Taste, and adjust seasonings. (Dressing should taste acidic, a little sweet and salty.)

  2. When you’re ready to eat, prepare the salad: Halve the avocados and discard the pits.Using a small paring knife, carefully score the avocado flesh into ½-inch cubes, avoiding cutting through the skin. Use a large spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh, as close to the skin as possible. Transfer avocado cubes to a large bowl and add the dressing; toss gently.

  3. Add the cucumbers and scallions and toss everything together. Season with salt and black pepper and serve immediately.
