<Prep time> 6 minutes

<Cook time> 0 minutes


2 cucumbers


1 1/2 tablespoons Soy sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons Wasabi

1 teaspoons honey or sugar

<Optional toppings>

finely chopped leeks


1. Sprinkle some salt over a cutting board then place on the cucumbers. Start rolling the cucumbers on the cutting board to rub in the salt.

2. Make diagonal slit halfway through the cucumbers but make sure to not cut all the ay through. Flip the cucumber over to complete the diagonal cuts.

3. Mix all seasonings listed above.

4. Toss the cucumbers in the seasons and now they're ready to be enjoyed!

<Miwa's tips>

・By rubbing the cucumbers in salt it helps to retain its bright green color and helps to absorb the seasonings.

・Please adjust the amount of wasabi paste since it's pretty pungent.

・If you are sensitive to wasabi, leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes first. The taste will become more mild when you leave it longer.

・This way of cutting the cucumber helps to absorb more seasoning + is more presentable! Haha. However, you can always cut in small chunks as you would normally do if you like.

<Storage time>

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
