Sunomono (Japanese Cucumber Salad)
How to Make Sunomono (Japanese Cucumber Salad)
- 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.
- 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.
