  1. Your searches didn't work because you spelled it wrong.

    It's spelled: sunomono.

    Sunomono (Japanese Cucumber Salad)
    Makes 4 servings

    2 medium cucumbers, peeled and seeded
    2 teaspoons salt
    1/3 cup rice vinegar
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
    1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root

    Cut cucumbers into thin slices; place in bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes, or until cucumbers are softened. Drain and squeeze out excess liquid. Combine vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and ginger in serving bowl; add cucumbers and mix well. Chill thoroughly before serving.

    1. re: zeke

      If you're going to make this, please try using the japanese cucumber -- called kyuri -- available at japanese (and probably korean) markets. Kyuri are firmer and have a nice crunch, less water content than "regular" cucumbers. If I can't find kyuri, I prefer using an english cucumber over others.

        Farmers sell Japanese cucumbers at the market held Wednesday mornings in Santa Monica at Arizona & Second. Scrumpcrunchious.

    2. Hi, Alan. This isn't really a Recipe Board, although from time to time we do help each other other with such. It's more a "where-can-I-find-the-best-most-delicious-tasting-food-retaurant-all-over-the-world?" Board. However, I did discover a peanut dipping sauce recipe for Vietnamese spring rolls. Is that what you want?
