I was getting tired of the same old cucumber salad with oil, vinegar and spices. Sunomono cucumber salad is a Japanese cucumber salad that uses rice vinegar, soy sauce and ginger.
You can grate fresh ginger if you have it, using about twice the amount called for. I only had the dry powdered ginger on hand.
If you don’t like ginger, the salad can be made without it. I enjoyed the Asian taste of this salad and will certainly make it again.
- 2 large cucumbers, peeled
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 2 packets stevia or other sugar substitute
- 3/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
- Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise and scoop out any large seeds. Slice crosswise into very thin slices. Place cucumber slices in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes, or until cucumbers are softened. Drain and squeeze out excess liquid.
- In a small bowl combine vinegar, sugar, salt, ginger, and soy sauce. Add cucumbers and mix until cucumbers are coated with the mixture. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
