A very tasty and refreshing little treat! Goes great with sushi and as a side to spicy dishes, as a cooling accompaniment. Prep time does not include marinating time.

This is very easy, very quick and very refreshing. I used plain rice vinegar and agree that the seasoned vinegar would have been a good choice.
