This salad has a vey nice crunchy texture as all three ingredients (Black Fungus, Enoki & Cucumber) have the crunchiness. It is easy to make, yet it can certainly impress your family or guests. If you love Enoki, you got to try this salad.

Fabulous texture. Really enjoyed this. Made it exactly as you describe but then also made it as a stir fry only replacing cucumber with spinach. Thank you for this inspiration will certainly make it again!
Thank you for your comment. I am glad you enjoyed this salad.
