It's a harusame (bean threads) salad flavored with soy sauce based dressing. It's good to add strips of ham if you would like.


  • 1 and 3/4 oz dried harusame, or cellophane noodles (bean thread noodles)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 small cucumber, cut into thin strips
  • For dressing:
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil


Boil water in a medium pot. Boil harusame noodles in the pot, according to the package instruction. Drain harusame noodles in a colander and cool them with cold water. Drain and set aside. Heat some oil in a frying pan, and make one or two sheets of thin omelette. Cool and slice them into strips. Cut drained harusame into 2 to 3 inches long. Put the harusame, cucumber, and omelette in a bowl. Mix sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over ingredients and mix well. Cool the salad.
*Makes 4 side-dish servings.

My mother made this without the egg and substituted tender chicken. She would also add some chopped green onion. To""Fast and Easy"": for a diabetic version, eliminate sugar and use stevia or an artificial sweetener if desired. The bean threads are relatively low in carbs.
