cucumber salad, gomasio and seaweed



gomasio is a traditional seasoning in japanese cuisine. it's sea salt and

toasted sesame seeds. eden organics has some in local health food stores... my favorite variety also has seaweed flakes in it. great on popcorn, and also in this:

peel, seed, and slice the cucumbers. for each cuke, add a splash of rice wine vinegar, a dash of fish sauce, and a few shakes of gomasio. toss. chill until serving.

this is nice on a plate with a spicy meat dish.

We're usually big fans but I must tell you that we look unfavorably at the epithet "cukes" you use to describe cucumbers. We prefer the whole word "cucumbers" to be written out. 'Cumbers is also acceptable as an abbreviated form. Thank you.

I say the cukier the better! I did not know about the seaweed sprinkle - that sounds really cool - it may be the very death of the family but why would they need to know -
