1 Tbsp avocado oil
1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil ( shake well )

Black Pepper to taste
Add VERY thinly sliced cucumber, minced red onion, diced red pepper, and sesame seeds to a medium size bowl. Set aside.
In a small bowl mix together rice vinegar, maple syrup , avocado oil , toasted sesame oil, red pepper flakes, & sea salt.
Add dressing to the cucumber bowl. Toss to mix everything.
