Cucumber and Dried Shiitake Mushroom Salad Recipe

Certain mushrooms such as Reishi, Turkey Tail, Shiitake, Matiake, and Chaga, are well documented to enhance over-all immunity. They protect against cellular changes and act as effective protectors against radiation poisoning as well as other environmental toxins. Here is one recipe that is easy to make.

1 small cucumber
1 teaspoon of sea salt
3 medium-sized dried shiitake mushrooms
2 teaspoons sesame seeds, roasted and crushed coarsely
2 teaspoon mirin wine
1/2 teaspoon of sweetener
2 to 3 drops of Japanese soy sauce

Peel cucumber and cut it in half, lengthwise. The cut it into very thin, half-moon-shapped slices. Sprinkle with salt and mix well. Set aside for an hour. Rinse under cold water to wash off salt. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

Soak the mushrooms in 1/2 cup of boiling water for half an hour. Remove coarse stems and cut mushroom caps into 1/8-inch-wide slices.

Combine cucumber, mushrooms, sesame seeds, vinegar, mirin, sweetener and soy sauce. Mix well. Serves 2.
