Sunomono (Cucumber Salad) Recipe – Japanese Cooking 101

Sunomono is a very simple, but very tasty Japanese side dish. It is healthy and refreshing, so it can accompany any main dish. Its combination of tangy and sweet tastes makes it unique and fun. Sunomono is made with Japanese cucumbers, that are skinnier than American ones and have smaller seeds and thinner skin.


• 3 cucumbers
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 3 tbsp rice vinegar
• 1 tbsp sugar
• 1/4 tsp soy sauce
• 1 tsp sesame seeds


Slice cucumbers as thin as possible.
Add them to a bowl and stir in salt.
Let it sit for five minutes.
Mix rice vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce in a small bowl until sugar dissolves.
Squeeze water out of cucumbers.
Add vinegar mixture and mix well.
Add sesame seeds and mix well.

Tips and ideas:

If you cannot find Japanese cucumbers, you can use English or Persian ones. Persian cucumbers are especially similar to Japanese ones.

If you like seaweed (Wakame), you can add it to this salad.
