Cucumber and Daikon Salad

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Cucumber and Daikon Salad
This type of vinegary dish is called sunomono. It has a refreshing taste and makes a good side dish.


  • 1 small daikon radish, peeled and thinly sliced into half or quarter rounds
  • 1 small cucumber, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 5 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


Put cucumber and daikon slices in a bowl and sprinkle salt and wait about 5-10 minutes. Wash off the daikon and cucumber slices and drain through a strainer. Lightly squeeze them to remove some liquid and put in a bowl. Mix rice vinegar and sugar in a small bowl. Pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumber and daikon. Set aside for about 15 minutes. Serve into individual bowls or a large bowl.
