This Japanese inspired cool, crisp salad is as elegant and well balanced as it is simple.

4 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Peel cucumbers to leave alternating green stripes. Slice the cucumbers in half lengthwise; scrape the seeds out with a spoon. Using a food processor or sharp knife, cut into very thin slices. Place in a double layer of paper towel and squeeze gently to remove any excess moisture.
  2. Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in a medium bowl, stirring to dissolve. Add the cucumbers and sesame seeds; toss well to combine. Serve immediately.
