The name "Sarasa-Yose" comes from "Monyo-Some" (a colorful fabric or pattern made of various fibers woven together, used in Japanese kimonos and wallpaper). The dish is cool and refreshing, and is especially during the hot summer months. If you are hosting a house party, make a large tray of it and cut into pieces to share with family and friends!
