From Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East Vegetarian Cooking. I ususally make it with 2 regular cucumbers sliced on a mandolin slicer. And I just throw unaltered sesame seeds in it.

  1. Slice cucumbers very very fine.

  3. Squeeze cucumbers &discard liquid.
  4. Add other ingredients and combine.

Nice. I make one similar, but add a little splenda. (Use sugar if you prefer, but I am diabetic.) Keep on hand in the fridge to go with everything!

Nice and low cal side dish! I did add a 1/4 tsp of sesame oil which really worked nicely and next time I will add less soy. THANKS!

Yum! After salting the cucumbers for 1 hour I did rinse and drain. I pan toasted the seeds. Thanks.
