Cucumber salad japanese dressing
================================ 2021-08-11

Inspired by : salade de concombre à la japonaise

Comment: Japanese inspiration for this cucumber salad. Do not prepare too much in advance, and especially mix the sauce only before serving. Do not put too much salt on the cucumber because the result may be too salty.

For 4 to 6 people depending on the size of the cucumber.


1 cucumber
1 tablespoon Mirin
2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 cm [1/8"] grated ginger
1 teaspoon of black sesame
1 teaspoon of white sesame


Peel the cucumber keeping some skin streaks.
Remove the seeds (inside) from the cucumber.
Cut the cucumber into very thin slices (no more than 1 mm).
Place the sliced cucumber in a bowl and sprinkle with a little salt.
Mix well and place in a colander.
Let it drip ~1h, then press well, using absorbant paper to remove as much water as possible.

Prepare the sauce by mixing all the ingredients.

In a salad bowl, put the cucumber and the sauce. Mix and serve fresh.
