I found this recipe for traditional Japanese cucumber salad on bento babe's blog, but since that one is in Dutch I will translate it for you. Since it is a tasty & easy recipe :) I added some notes though.
- Half a cucumber
- 1 tsp of ginger
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- Optional: some sugar or mirin
Cut the cucumber really thin. Add salt and leave it for 10-15 minutes. This will remove some of the moist from the cucumber. Get as much moist out as you can, I personally used kitchen towels for it. Then add the soy sauce, ginger & rice vinegar. Optionally you can add mirin or sugar. I added 2 tsp of sugar since we both like sweet in this house. Tastes best if you leave it overnight in the fridge. You can add some sesame seeds or nori to it. I added black sesame seeds.
