Not sure what happened in the publishing process. Originally this recipe called for a tablespoon of Honteri or Mirin, not sugar. These are sweet cooking sauces which you can definitely find in Asian grocery stores, but most major grocery stores also carry them. If you are going to use sugar I would recommend only using a teaspoon.

I love all the ingredients seperately so figured this MUST be good. I was wrong. I could not stand this recipe. Actually, no one in the house could. Sorry, I really expected to like it but didn't.

This was AWESOME! I made it for my husband and I to pack in our lunch and it was delicious. I used cayenne pepper & roasted red pepper flakes and plain EVOO instead of chili oil! The sesame seeds were the perfect crunch!

This was really tasty! A great change from your everyday green salad. Even my husband liked it. I'll definately make it again, but I'll peel the cucumber, and cut down a bit on the sugar. Very quick to toss together.

Very good - following the submitters correction in the reviews. Hope AR changes the ingredients & directions for you. Thanks for the recipe!

Solid. I like things a bit spicy so I doubled the chili oil and cut down on the sugar. Awesome

Double the marinade decrease sugar to teaspoons not tablespoons

Pretty good, though somehow I thought it would be mindblowing. It sounded like a simple-yet-genius dish. I overhyped it in my mind.
