By the way, salads are a fairly common type of dish in Japanese cuisine. But they are very different from the popular European ones — it is quite rare to find fresh vegetables and herbs that are familiar to us.

Therefore, all the ingredients are cut in such a way that it is convenient to take them with chopsticks — very thin straws, almost strings.
