Umeboshi are pickled plums and are known to help digestion and stimulate diet.
Mix together the umeboshi paste, mirin, chopped scallions, and parsley. Toss the cucumbers with this mixture until they're evenly coated. Garnish with more chopped scallions or parsley, if you like. Serve soon after tossing or the salad will become watery.
