Vegan Gluten-Free Stuffed Cucumber Salad

Share some yum!

We came up with this delicious salad after learning of the amazing health benefits of sunflower and sesame seeds, especially in the area of women’s health! We’ve now made it a point to toss a handful of both seeds on to any veggie dish we are eating. In this recipe, the seeds lend a delicious crunch to accompany the yummy, garlicky tartness of the dressing.

A note about the rice wine vinegar in this recipe: There tends to be a lot of confusion with rice wine vinegar and whether or not it is gluten free. This confusion is because the rice used is often called “glutinous rice,” which understandably sounds like it is packed full of gluten. In reality, it is an Asian rice, and becomes very sticky when it is cooked. The “glutinous” part is in reference to the fact that it is sticky and glue-like. So rest assured, it is gluten free!
