Perfect Summer Side Dish Japanese Cucumber Salad by Hip2Save.com
Directions: Slice cucumbers and onion very thin (I used a mandolin slicer). Place cucumbers in a colander or salad spinner and drain liquid. You can also use a kitchen towel to squeeze out liquid. Salt cucumbers. Mix together vinegar, sesame oil, and sugar. Toss with onion and cucumbers and top with sesame seeds. This dish tastes even better when marinated in the refrigerator for a few hours. Makes 4 servings.

    Thanks Lina! Can’t wait to make this! I always order sunomono salad at Japanese restaurants and look forward to enjoying it at home.

      Sure Emilie! I love ordering this salad too, and it’s easy to make a similar one at home. 🙂

    I add salt into the bowl with sliced cucumber, mix and let it sit a while.
    Then squeeze liquid out.
    Add rice vinegar and sugar.
    That’s how I make it.

    My grandmother made the best canned cucumbers. I don’t know how she made them but they were wonderful. A wonderful childhood memory.
