About this recipe: A Japanese recipe for cucumbers marinated in vinegar, sugar, salt and ginger. So simple but so delicious!
Used different ingredients. I give this recipe 4 stars because it's quite good but I made a few additions that made it 5 stars. I added some thin carrot shavings made with my vegetable peeler. The carrot tastes good with this dressing and adds a really nice touch of colour. I also added several drops of toasted sesame oil and a tiny bit of cracked pepper. Just before serving I added toasted sesame seeds. Everyone loved it - 24 Jul 2008
This reminds me of a similar cucumber dish my Mom makes - this one's is just a bit sweeter. My mom also includes thinly sliced red onion in hers - it adds a nice little variety in texture. A deliciously light side dish. - 24 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Excellent summer salad. Refreshing and light. I omitted the ginger and added some grated carrot and nori (seaweed). The perfect side dish for our sushi roll dinner. Even my toddler liked the salad. - 24 Jul 2008
