Japanese salad

Updated: Aug 13, 2020

Even if the post is “Japanese salad”, the main focus of this post is the dressing of this salad. I used to organise sushi evenings at my place when I was a student, where I would make sushi for my friends. As a starter I would make a simple salad using some dressing that I would buy at the Japanese shop. That dressing was amazing, everybody loved it. So I tried to recreate it.

The salad itself is quite simple, but you can add more or less anything you would like. I will just provide you with what I usually use, but no amounts as everyone does as they like.

Dressing ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of Soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of Mirin

  • 1 tablespoon of White or rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon of Sesame oil

Salad ingredients

  • Cabbage

  • Cucumber

  • Carrot

  • Tomato

  • Onion


  1. Mix all the dressing ingredients.

  2. Slice thinly the cabbage, cucumber, carrot and onion (the best way is with a mandoline slicer).

  3. Cut into small dices the tomato.

  4. Mix everything together.

Enjoy 😉
