Japanese Cucumber Salad
Ingredients – Serves 2-3
Salt – 1 Tsp
Sugar – 1 Tsp
Lightly Toasted Sesame Seeds – 2 tsps
Rice Wine Vinegar- 2.5 tbsps
Toast sesame seeds in a nonstick pan for 1-2 minutes & let it cool on the side.
Peel & thinly slice the cucumber. I used a mandolin as its faster and easier.
Double layer a colander over a bowl and place the peeled & slices cucumber over the towel for 20 mins.
After 20 mins, place the cucumber in the bowl, add all the ingredients to it. Mix well and serve immediately.
You’re all set!
Note: In the past i have dissolved the salt & sugar in the vinegar & added the cucumber to it but it tends to make the salad watery however feel free to do what works for you.
