Delish!! I added tofu, which would of course add points, however, super yum. Also added seaweed strips.

I don't have blood pressure issues, so the sodium content is fine with me, but maybe try cutting it in half and see how it tastes. This recipe with shredded cabbage instead of cuccumber is also fntastic. I have put this recipe on a sticky note in my kitchen cupboard, I love it so much.
