I love Cucumber Salad! This was great! I used 1 long seedless English Cucumber, and used my my handy mandolin slicer to get very thin slices. I also used a splash of Mirin, because that's the way my Mom always makes these, also grated toasted sesame seeds on top. Delicious! I will use this recipe often! Made for 1.2.3 Hits
