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.

This Japanese inspired cool, crisp salad is as elegant and well balanced as it is simple.
15 Reviews for Japanese Cucumber Salad
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.
I have made this several times & we never tire of it. It is easy to make, healthy & delicious. It goes perfectly with many meals but I like to use it to balance an otherwise heavy meal where a regular salad would be too much. I may add a few raw carrots as well.
I always get this cucumber salad when I go to my local sushi place. I looked up a few recipes and this was the perfect copycat. I cut my cucumber into thicker slices and added fresh sliced strawberries. The perfect "sweet/sour/salty" combination.
