1. If you own a spiralizer, use it to cut cucumbers and carrots into long noodles. Otherwise, a julienne peeler will do the trick.

2. Place the spiralized cucumber into a strainer and toss with 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Let drain for 15-20 minutes to remove excess water.

3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, lime juice, honey, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, poppy seeds and and sesame seeds.

4. Once the cucumber has drained, spread it onto a layer of paper towels and pat out as much moisture as you can. Place the cucumber and carrot noodles into a large salad bowl, and add 2-3 tablespoons dressing. Toss to combine, then serve garnished with additional sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and fresh cilantro.
