This is a cool and tangy salad that can compliment any Asian themed meal. Especially with things like Tempura or other dishes that don't already include a substantial amount of vegetables. Also very quick and simple to make!

How to Make Sunomono (Japanese Cucumber Salad)

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash cucumbers and peel if desired. (I peel stripes on mine.) Slice cucumbers paper thin using a mandolin. Stir in salt, and let it sit for 5 minutes. Squeeze water out from cucumbers.
  2. In a small bowl, mix rice vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce together until sugar dissolves. Add vinegar mixture and sesame seeds to prepared cucumbers and toss gently.
