I was recently digging through some recipes that my parent's Japanese maid used while my father (US Navy) was stationed in Yokosuka, Japan during the late '60's and found this really easy salad.

This is by far my favorite cucumber salad! I use a mandolin set at 1/8 " slice for the cucumber. I recommend using only fresh ground ginger, it is the best!
