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



READER'S COMMENT:
"Great combination of sweet and sour from the rice vinegar. The toasted sesame seeds are essential, so make sure you have 'em on hand :) YUM. "

needs more sugar!!!

Made the mistake of not tasting the vinegar mix before dumping on my cucumbers. Japanese cucumber salad is supposed to be sweet!!! This is not. 1tsp of sugar is horribly inadequate to sweating 1/4C of vinegar. Wish I would have tasted first!! Adjust the sugar and I think it'd be great.

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.

Faulty nutritional info?

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

Refreshing and easy

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.
