Vinegary Salad of Cucumber and Wakame

Vinegary salad, or we call it “Sunomono” which literally means vinegary dish, is a very popular side dish in Japan. Its clean and refreshing flavour goes well with any main dishes. It’s oil free so you don’t need to worry about calories, though you can get all the goodness from the Wakame seaweed which is packed with all the vitamins and minerals from the sea.

Ingredients For 2

150g Cucumber

5g Dried Wakame (Seaweed)

1 tbs Salt

2 tbs Rice vinegar

1 tbs Sugar

1 tbs Parched white sesame

Method

  1. Soak the dried Wakame (Seaweed) in a bowl to reconstitute and drain.
  2. Cut the cucumber in half lengthways and slice thinly. Place the cucumber slices in a bowl and sprinkle the salt, then massage them. Wash out the salt and squeeze out excess water from the cucumber.
  3. Place the vinegar and the sugar in a bowl. Mix well until the sugar is dissolved. Add the Wakame, cucumber and sesame. Mix well then serve.
