How to Make Japanese-Style Cucumber Salad
1Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon. Cut up the cucumbers into bite-sized pieces.
2Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan, shaking occasionally, until a few seeds pop. Immediately transfer the seeds to a plate.
3Mix the lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, dashi stock granules and sugar together until the sugar has dissolved. Taste, and add a pinch of salt if you think it needs it. Add the sesame oil.
4Combine the cucumbers with the dressing and the sesame seeds. Serve right away or leave to marinate in the refrigerator for a stronger flavor.
