A simple summer salad of cucumber and onion marinated in red wine vinegar, mirin, sugar, ginger and lime juice.
Good taste, texture and appearance. Made a nice accompaniment to a Japanese meal. I didn't have mirin, so a used a regular sweet wine, and red onions to add a bit of colour. I am NOT normally a fan of cucumbers, but I will definitely make this again. - 29 Sep 2008
Although I liked this, I thought the ginger was over-powering. Next time I'll cut back on it. Also, you are going to want to use very fresh, crisp cukes. I used one that was past it's prime & I didn't care for the texture of it. So I made it again using a very crisp one....much better! Thansk Christine...we enjoyed this but next time, will cut back on the ginger. - 29 Sep 2008
A great way to dress up cucumbers. The recipe also works well using sake instead of mirin. - 29 Sep 2008
