- 1 English cucumber
- 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted We ran out of time to toast them, but it was still yummy!
- 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 4 tsp. mirin This is a wine btw! I didn’t know that 🙂
- 2 tsp. rice vinegar
- 1 tsp. sugar
Cut the cucumber lengthwise into 1/4-inch pieces, cut each piece in half, then cut the halves lengthwise into thin strips. Place them into a bowl and set aside. Place the soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, and sugar into a small container with a secure lid. Put the lid on and shake to create the vinaigrette dressing. Pour the vinaigrette over the cucumber, toss to coat, cover, and marinate for 1 hour, stirring once or twice. Just before serving, sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds on top.
