chile cucumber crab salad

this salad is suprisingly delicious. the flavors are light and work well together. the assembly is simple. it's a great light summer lunch, yet is suprisingly filling. i recreated this recipe from a salad at our local sushi resauraunt (which is suprisingly delicious, considering it is a sushi restaurant in mexico.) don't tell dino, but here's the dish!

chile cucumber crab salad
an original recipe by rachelle, inspired by dino

2 Tablespoons soy sauce
juice from 1 lime
1/2 cucumber, deseeded, sliced
1/3 cup imitation crab, diced
3/4 teaspoon red chile powder
(if you have access to coarse grind/sugar/salt mix chile powder, like lucas or tepin, use only 1/2 teaspoon ground powder and 1 teaspoon coarse grind.)
1 teaspoon sesame seeds

pour soy sauce and lime juice in a serving bowl. layer sliced cucumber, then crab. sprinkle with chili powder, then sesame seeds. serve immediately. stir well to enjoy.
