lovely salad but I don't see how one gets 35%DV of iron in a half tablespoon of sesame seeds per serving

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

A wonderful simple salad. Refreshing easy side for any BBQ, it went over well at a potluck.
Only thing I do differently is slice the cucumbers in half-moon shapes rather than making the ribbons, as I find that to be easier.
I loved it! I always grab a bunch of the cucumber salad at Asian buffets and I finally looked into making one. I loved this japanese version. Will make it every week, I am officially addicted!
Refreshing salad if you like the vinegar flavor, which I do. I served fresh sliced tomatoes and put the cucumber salad over them. Great combo.
My husband and I both loved this salad. It was extremely simple and fast to make, and worked well for a picnic. The toasted sesame seeds were delightful, and really gave the salad it's wonderful flavor. I didn't have rice vinegar, but used white wine vinegar instead, which turned out delicious.
