A Refreshing Appetizer

If you are looking for something unique and easy to serve the next time you have people over this may be the perfect small dish for you.  I recently had dinner at my aunt and uncle's house and this was the first course.  I wrote my aunt the next day and asked her how to make it:
"You need onions, lox, soy sauce, lemon juice and sesame oil.  You can use use white onions.  Mixing white with red is nice too.  But not yellow- they are too strong.  Slice (or more like shave) the onions as thin as you can using a slicer like a mandolin.  Put sliced onions in cold water. Let sit. Change water a couple of times.  Put through strainer.  Get rid of water.  Pat dry with a paper towel. Mix onions in a bowl with thin strips of lox. In a separate bowl mix soy sauce, lemon juice and a small quantity of sesame oil to make the dressing.  I just eyeball it and taste as I go.  Nice with capers if you like them.  Dress with onion/lox dressing. Enjoy."
There were are also daikon sprouts garnishing ours on this night.  Delicious!

So there you have it. From my aunt and uncle's kitchen to yours.
