2 English seedless cucumbers (Japanese cucumbers preferred, but harder to find in a small town like ours.)
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tb rice vinegar
1 Tb sugar
1/4 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame seeds
1. Slice strips lengthwise down the cucumber.
2. Thinly slice cucumbers into circles, or chop into sticks for sushi, or both.
3. Put cucumbers and salt in a large plastic bag and shake vigorously to coat cucumbers in salt. Place salted slices in colander and put a weight on top of them.
