How to cook Kani salad?
We used crab sticks. They were thawed a little and cut into thin strips.
A fresh cucumber was cut into thin semi-circles. Carrots were rubbed with thin strips on a Korean grater. Japanese mayonnaise, Ponzu sauce, soy sauce and fried sesame seeds were mixed for the sauce. Mix all the vegetables and dressing in a large cup and spread on plates. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
