The perfect light cucumber salad. Exactly the recipe I've been looking for. Still great without the sesame seeds, and improves in flavor and crispness after refrigeration.

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

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