Sunomono is a Japanese cucumber salad served at the beginning of meals.

It's made of marinated cucumber slices topped with sesame seeds. It can be served with a thin, vinegar-based sauce such as Amazu sauce or Ponzu sauce, or with a simple sauce made of just vinegar and sugar.

Variations can include wakame and seafood such as crab, octopus and shrimp.
