You need ‘Green Shiso’ leaves to make this salad. Alternatively ‘Perilla’ that has similar scent can be used. I used to have so much difficulties to find ‘Shiso’ but now I am growing ‘Shiso’ in my garden. I bought seeds of ‘Aojiso’, Japanese Green Shiso, from a store in NSW on eBay. If you like ‘Shiso’, why don’t you try growing them yourself?
1 Continental Cucumber *about 300g
1/4 teaspoon Salt
4-5 leaves Shiso *thinly sliced
1/2 to 1 Chilli *thinly sliced
1-2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
1 pinch Sugar
- Cut Cucumber in quarter lengthways and cut diagonally. Or cut it as you like. Sprinkle Salt and massage, then set aside.
- Add all other ingredients and mix to combine.
