I'm obsessed with many Asian things...Asian cars (Honda, Toyota), Asian dogs (Akitas), Asian countries (top of my list for international travel), Asian decor (cherry blossoms, bamboo), and of course...Asian food. I LOVE sushi!! Soooo so much. Now don't feel bad for me thinking I can't have it anymore...there are plenty of restaurants that will happily make me some loaded veggie sushi. PLUS, there's plenty more to be enjoyed when you go out for sushi! Miso soup...seaweed salad...edamame...and something like this:
Sesame Cucumber Salad

1. Finely slice the cucumbers.
2. Whisk together oil, mirin, vinegar, and salt.
