  • Cook's Notes:

    Substitute apple cider vinegar (such as Bragg(R)) for the rice vinegar if desired. Peanut butter can work instead of roasted sesame oil in a pinch. Use 4 packets sugar substitute instead of the sugar if desired.

    I haven’t tried them, but fish sauce or hoisin might be great toppings as well.

    For stronger flavor, refrigerate sunomono overnight.
