Japanese Chilled Shrimp and Cucumber Salad Recipe

Japanese Chilled Shrimp and Cucumber Salad Recipe
Makes 6 servings


1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 English hothouse cucumber, thinly sliced crosswise
1/2 pound cooked baby bay shrimp, rinsed
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Stir vinegar and sugar in large nonreactive bowl until sugar dissolves. Add cucumber, shrimp and chives. Toss to coat. Season to taste with salt. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour for flavors to blend.

Transfer salad to serving bowl. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

HELPFUL TIP: If packing for a picnic, transfer the salad to an airtight, unbreakable container and keep cool in an insulated carrier with blue ice nearby. Pack the toasted sesame seeds in a separate bag or cup to sprinkle at serving time.
