Sunomono Recipe: Refreshing Japanese Cucumber Salad 

Sunomono is a refreshing Japanese cucumber salad with a light, vinegary taste.

Use Japanese or Persian cucumbers for their thin skin and crisp texture.

Slice cucumbers thinly with a mandoline slicer, food processor, or knife.

Salt the cucumbers to draw out moisture, then rinse and squeeze them dry.

Combine rice vinegar, sugar, salt, soy sauce, and sesame seeds for the dressing.

Marinate the cucumbers in the dressing for at least 1 hour, or overnight for best results.

Garnish with sesame seeds before serving and enjoy this healthy side dish!

Sunomono is a great appetizer and stores well in the refrigerator.
