An excellent blend of flavors. I believe the secret of this recipe is the very thin slicing of the cukes and onion and careful grating of the ginger. I used the recipe as a side and it was well received but the best raves came from using the recipe as a condiment for submarine sandwiches- I had to make more.

Good taste, texture and appearance. Made a nice accompaniment to a Japanese meal. I didn't have mirin, so a used a regular sweet wine, and red onions to add a bit of color. I am NOT normally a fan of cucumbers, but I will definitely make this again.

A great way to dress up cucumbers. The recipe also works well using sake instead of mirin.
