Flipped Oriental Sesame Cucumbers

I have so many cucumbers from the garden ready to eat!  I love Grandma's standard cucumber and vinegar recipe (that's her vinegar cruet you see), but what's great about this Oriental Sesame Cucumber recipe it's an entirely different version full of wonderful flavors! Especially the longer they marinate.  Soooo good! 

As with any recipe, I encourage you to adjust ingredients to your liking.  I love the flavor of  toasted sesame oil, so I find myself adding a 'dash' more!
