Sunomono (Japanese Cucumber Salad)

Amy Herald


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)


  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.
