This is in response to a request. It is from "The Complete Asian Cookbook" by Charmaine Solomon. It does require that it marinates a while before serving. There is no real cook time involved.

  2. Cut into thin slices.
  3. Combine all other ingredients and marinate cucumber in the seasonings for at least 1 hour.

I am the one who requested these and I finally made them, and am I glad I did!! Exactly what I was looking for, they serve these as an appatizer at my favorite Japanese restaurant, and this recipe is pretty near identical, I am so happy! Thanks so much Taylortwo!

This is a very refreshing side dish. I made it to go along with Japanese style salmon and it complemented the entree perfectly.

The only thing I did differently was to add some chili garlic sauce for a little kick, but otherwise, I did follow the recipe. Next time I might add some onion because DH kept saying this is delicious but where is the onion. Thank you. Made for Healthy Choices tag game.
