First of all, this salad is called "SUNOMONO", not "Sunomo". It's Japanese. I give this recipe 4 stars because it's quite good but I made a few additions that made it 5 stars. I added some thin carrot shavings made with my vegetable peeler. The carrot tastes good with this dressing and adds a really nice touch of colour. I also added several drops of toasted sesame oil and a tiny bit of cracked pepper. Just before serving I added toasted sesame seeds. Everyone loved it :)

Great recipe. Thank you. Some people are so rude! It's called this not that. I added this this and that etc... If people are going to add so much to a recipe, then you are not following the recipe, so how can you rate it one way or another? If you insist on changing so much on a recipe, write your own and don't say you followed somone's recipe (but made your own additions) and then leave them 4 stars after you completely changed the recipe.

This was tasty and refreshing. It went great with our main dish, "Japanese Beef Stir Fry," recipe also from this site, and would also be wonderful with sushi. I had something similar at an excellent sushi restaurant in Minneapolis and this was almost a carbon copy. A little sweet (I used Splenda), a little gingery, but that's the way it's supposed to be. A definite "make again."
