      Title: Sunomono or japanese noodle and cucumber salad
 Categories: Digest, Oriental
      Yield: 4 Servings
      5    To 6 oz. of dry vermicelli
      6 T  Rice vinegar
      4 t  Sugar
      2 t  Soy sauce
      1 t  Salt
      1    To 2 tbsp of sesame seeds
      1    Medium-sized cucumber
           - extra sesame seeds for the
           - scallion greens, thinly
           Sliced-optional (I used the
           Scallions greens)
  1) Cook the noodles in boiling water until just tender. Drain and
  rinse in cold water. Drain thoroughly, and transfer to a medium-sized
  bowl. (My advice, store in water if not using right away!) 2) Add
  vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, salt, and sesame seeds. Mix well. Cover
  and chill until cold. (Don't chill for too long or the noodles will
  stick together. I did this but was able to save it by adding more
  rice vinegar until the noodles separated again. It tasted great.) 3)
  Peel adn seed the cucumber. Cut into quarters lengthwise, then into
  thin pieces. If not serving right away, wrap the cucumber pieces in a
  plastic bag or plastic wrap and refrigerate. 4) To serve, divide the
  noodles amon 4 or 5 serving bowls. Top with a small handful of
  cucumber slices, a light sprinkling of sesame seeds, and , if
  desired, a few very thin slices of scallion greens. Serve cold.
  This salad is subtle adn very refreshing. There is a variety of
  textures-chewy cold noodles (bean thread noodles, some call them
  cellophane noodles 'cause when you boil them they become clear),
  crunchy sesame seeds, and smooth cucumber slices. Sweet, salt, and
  vinegar combine harmoniously, each understated but very much present.
  Everything except the cucumbers and toppings can be combined several
  days ahead of time. (I beg to differ on this claim because, if you
  don't keep the boiled noodles in cold water while setting them aside,
  they will stick together.) The cucumbers can be prepared ahead also,
  and kept separate until serving.
  Note: The dressing contains no oil. ( However the sesame seeds do)
  Prep time:  15 minutes, plus chilling time, Yield: 4 to 5 servings
