  • Slice cucumbers into very thin slices using a mandoline, or carefully with a knife. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Stir until well combined and set aside for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk sugar, ginger, vinegar, and soy sauce in a bowl until well combined.

  • Squeeze excess liquid out of cucumbers using your hands or a clean tea towel. Toss cucumbers with the dressing. Stir well and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.

  • Just before serving, sprinkle each portion with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
