Yum! Used reduced-sodium soy sauce to cut down the sodium a bit. Made a perfect side to seared tuna. I also toasted the sesame seeds first, to give them better flavor. Love how quick and easy this one is. I think I'll be making it often this summer!

I love this for summer, or to remind me of summer in the winter. I use the hot house cucumbers so it doesn't have to be peeled or seeded. I also cut the salt out completely; you really don't need it with the soy sauce.

This salad is sooo good and healthy... And what's great is that it barely has any calories...

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.
