Crushed Cucumber Salad Marinated in Sesame Vinegar

Yesterday, I couldn't write my diary again :(
I was searching about Google Webmaster Tools (since it is a little job-related) and when I realized, it was already 0:00!
Time flies! I had other stuff to do, but I couldn't even start!

Weather here is cloudy and the forecast shows rainy days for about a week from tomorrow evening! Rainy season came back...
I went out to eat lunch again with my co-worker to enjoy this fine weather. I had a healthy set lunch menu of avocado natto rice bowl. It comes with salad, soup, dessert, and vegetable smoothie. The smoothie was really great!

Today, I will translate my refreshing cucumber salad! It is very easy. It is also my popular recipe at Cookpad! 48 people have photo reported it to me and said good at this point :)
I used Japanese cucumber. It looks like the picture on the right. You can also use English cucumber or mini cucumber. Those are close to it!

Crushed Cucumber Salad Marinated in Sesame Vinegar

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 5min or less
Number of servings: 2

1 Japanese cucumber

* 1 tsp. 3 times concentrated Yamasa's Konbu Tsuyu or soy sauce

1. Cut cucumber into 1-inch chunks. Place the plastic wrap over the chunks and beat them using a rolling pin.
2. Place the cucumber in a bowl, add sesame vinegar, and toss lightly.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

This morning, my boyfriend came back at 4am! He said he had a lot of work to do. I am glad I could leave the office on time. This is one of the reasons I cannot change my job even though I have a beef.

Okay, see you again :)
Hope I can stay up to finish my stuff tonight!!!
