One thing I almost always have in my fridge is Cucumbers and Carrots. My Husband always likes a Salad with his meal so  coming up with new ones is always a challenge. One day I had no idea what to make. I stared at the cucumbers and carrots for a long moment and then made this Asian Inspired Salad. Went down pretty well and its so easy to toss up! Cucumber and Carrot Salad
