Japanese Salad With Sweet Vinegar Dressing-Sunomono

This is an easy to make Japanese Salad With Sweet Vinegar Dressing. If I am not mistaken, some restaurants calls it Sunomono Salad. Basically, the salad consists of Wakame (Japanese seaweed), seafood, vegetables, and noodles mixed with a slightly acidic dressing. Here I chose to use mung bean noodles or also known as bean thread and glass noodles. Then, I topped the salad with some toasted sesame seeds. Do try making this refreshing salad at home.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest.
