Gently smashing fresh cucumber slices helps them absorb much more of the vinaigrette, almost as if they’ve been marinating overnight. It’s a popular technique in many parts of Asia because cucumbers take on sweet, sour, and spicy flavors so well. Start with firm cucumbers and smash with about as much force as you’d smash a garlic clove to remove its papery skin (the slices should be just slightly broken down, not pulpy). Serve this light summer entrée with hot cooked brown rice, and sprinkle with chopped roasted peanuts for a little extra crunch.
