    5g dried shiitake mushrooms

    1. Make the sunomono brine the day before. Soak the dried shiitake in 150ml cold water for 6-8 hours (or overnight). Take the shiitake out (save them to use in a soup or salad) and mix the vinegar, salt and mirin into the soaking liquid.

    2. Cut the tomatoes in half and sit them in a shallow bowl. Pick the mint leaves and tear them with your hands, then scatter over the tomatoes. Halve, core, then thinly slice the apples and sit on top of the mint. Pour over the sunomono brine, and serve immediately
