Nutritional Information

This super simple string bean salad takes fresh cut long beans, soy sauce, and toasty ground white sesame seeds. The cool thing about this recipe is that is shows you how to make a delicious sesame dressing that complements the dish perfectly.


  • 1 lb String Beans
  • Salt
  • 1 cup Niban Sashi
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Rice Wine (sake)
  • 1/4 tsp All Purpose Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup White sesame seeds (warmed & ground into a paste)
  • 3 tbsp Rice Wine (sake)
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp All Purpose Soy Sauce


  • 1. Snip off and discard the ends of the green beans then cut them into 1/2" lengths. Drop the beans into 2 cup of lightly salted boiling water, reduce heat to moderate and cook briskly, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the beans are tender but still slightly resistant to the bite. Drain and run them under cold water.
  • 2. In the same pan, combine the dashi, sugar, 1/4 ts salt, a sprinkle of soy sauce, sake. Bring to a boil over moderate heat, add the string beans and return to the boil. Remove the pan from the heat and cool to room temperature.
  • 3. Dressing: Over high heat, heat 3 tbsp sake to lukewarm. Removepan from heat and ignite the sake with a kitchen match, shaking the pan gently until the flame dies out. Pour the sake into a small bowl and cool to room temperature.
  • 4. Add the sake, 2 tsp sugar and 2 tbsp soy sauce to the previously prepared sesame paste and mix together thoroughly.
  • 5. Pour the sesame dressing into a large bowl, add the drained string beans and toss together until the vegetables are thoroughly coated. Taste for seasoning adding more salt if necessary. Serve at room temperature in small bowls, as a first course, salad or part of a Japanese meal.
