Tasty. I did add a little extra honey, a pinch of ginger and a pinch of garlic. Added some red pepper and carrots to the cucumbers. Yummy side dish.

I made this as a fast salad for supper tonight. Since it was just me, I cut everything in half and didn't cook the dressing. Just put everything (except the cucumbers) in a small jar and shake well. Tossed it and let stand. ENJOY! PS. Add a handfull of olive slices or halves for a change of pace.

We followed the recipe, except we removed the seeds & mandolined our cucumber into strings. A perfect & quick salad to our summer barbecue dinner. Thank you very much for posting this recipe! I look forward to trying it again with grated ginger or sesame seeds ....

I love this recipe. I cut the cucumber into match sticks and double the sesame oil. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Fabulous served with grilled chicken breast. My aunt who lives in Japan made a salad very similar to this on her last visit home.

Very good but a little tart for our personal tastes so I added a sprinkle of splenda to sweeten it up a bit more. Tossed the salad with the cucumber ribbons, romaine and carrot ribbons..salad went very well with a asian marinated seared ahi tuna!

This is nice Asian style cucumber salad. It's great as is, but I add a little grated fresh ginger root, that adds one more dimension.

Yummy! This is one of my favorite salads. I always order it when I go out for sushi. If I knew it was so easy to make I would have done it a long time ago.

Cucumber salads are the perfect summer tonic. This was a very refreshing change of pace from our usual preparation. The soy sauce and sesame oil add a different flavor dimension. I added a sprinkle of sesame seeds for garnish. Thanks for posting.
