"Sheildzini is a Japanese cucumber salad. It is very simple to put together, and very delicious. Do not prepare too far in advance as cucumbers become soggy. If the skins are tough or bitter, peel the cucumbers before preparing salad."

rice wine vinegar
The soy sauce made it a bit different, a scosh more salty then restaurant style - still, a very nice flavor! I did cut the soy sauce amount in half, and added a little bit more sugar and rice vinegar to suit my family's taste! Thank you for the recipe!
I didn't like this. Soy sauce flavor was a little strong; slightly bitter. Wouldn't make it again.
Making this I thought, this will be really sour and yukky. But even though I left out the oil (watching my weight) it turned out SOOOO tasty! Really nice, next time I think I'll try a bit of ginger on top too.
I would suggest using english cucumbers (fewer seeds) sliced on the diagonal, adding a few green onions sliced on the diagonal...optional but good, and substituting sesame oil for the vegetable oil. It's also good with a small sprinkling of sesame seeds too. My mom makes it this way and she's Japanese. It's fantastic!I checked with her today and she doesn't add sugar or rice wine vinegar. I always thought she had....at least added the vinegar I mean. I plan on making cucumber salad today as my side to teriyaki chicken and rice. I will try the vinegar because it sounds like a great balance to the other flavors. Enjoy it any way you make it. Cucumber salad is the best.
DOn't chill for too long or the cucumber get a little soggy but a great accompliment to oriental food
I love this sooooo good...Thank you,,,
I thought this recipe was excellent! I did not use the salt because I didn't feel it needed it with they soy sauce but other than that, this had the perfect blend. This was so simple yet packed full of flavor and had such a nice light crunch to it. I will make this often.
What a great way to serve cucumbers. I didn't add the salt or oil and used an extra teaspoon of sugar. Delicious and very easy
