Din Tai Fung’s Cucumber Salad is one of their most popular appetizers, I order it almost every time I eat there. It’s light and refreshing, with a hint of spice – the crisp cucumbers are tossed in a dressing made with Din Tai Fung’s signature chili oil and a tiny bit of sesame oil – very delicious and flavorful.
Sadly Din Tai Fung doesn’t sell their Chili Oil at their U.S. locations, I was only able to get a hold of this because I found it on eBay from a seller shipping it from Taiwan. So if you can’t get their chili oil, substitute it with your favorite chili oil. Now that I have it, I’ll work on a copycat of it
