Golden Kiss Melon Sunomono Cucumber Salad

Sunomono is a Japanese cucumber salad, often served in small portions along side your sushi at the bar.

It's deliciously refreshing.

Golden Kiss melons are exactly that, too -- deliciously refreshing! And they're also sweet, which makes it the perfect addition to Sunomono.

Sugar is often an ingredient in the marinade for Sunomono, however, when you add the melon, its sweetness is all you need!
