Simply Asia Sweet Ginger Garlic Seasoning

Last week, I tried the Simply Asia Sweet Ginger Garlic Seasoning at Costco on the chance it might be as good as the Johnny's Garlic Spread. I needed recipes and was slightly disappointed by not having any included with the bottle; but, the website, address printed on the label, has plenty of recipes.

Stir-fry was first. I used this in place of my regular sauce.

1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbs turbinado sugar
2 tbs Simply Asia spice mix

Bob complimented the sauce without being asked.  I will make that again. 

I wanted to see what else the mix could do. This time of year, since we have so many cucumbers from the garden, I'm looking for cucumber recipes. 

I tried marinating cucumbers in a variation of the Simply Asia coleslaw dressing recipe. With a few tweaks, due to what was on hand, here's my variation:

2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon Simply Asia spice mix
1/4 cup olive oil

Salt cucumbers and let stand for 30 minutes. Drain. Wisk together dressing recipe, pour over cucumbers. Marinate in fridge for a couple hours before serving - good, slightly spicy, but refreshing as a side dish.

I tried this dressing on chopped cabbage and liked that too.
