      This salad was so good we were fighting over the last few pieces of cucumber and my boyfriend doesn't even like wasabi! I substituted pine nuts for the seseme seeds and it gave it an additional texture that we liked. I tried making it up ahead of time and putting it in the fridge, but the seseme oil didn't do so well. It was so easy I ended up just remaking the dressing before adding the cucumbers and it came out perfectly.
