Japanese Cucumber Salad

This Japanese inspired cool, crisp salad is as elegant and well balanced as it is simple.

Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 15 min.


  • 2 medium cucumbers, or 1 large English cucumber
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted (see Tip)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Peel cucumbers to leave alternating green stripes. Slice the cucumbers in half lengthwise; scrape the seeds out with a spoon. Using a food processor or sharp knife, cut into very thin slices. Place in a double layer of paper towel and squeeze gently to remove any excess moisture.

Step 2

Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in a medium bowl, stirring to dissolve. Add the cucumbers and sesame seeds; toss well to combine. Serve immediately.
