Sunomono is a term that refers to a range of vinegar-based Japanese foods and Japanese dishes. In Japanese, “su” means vinegar. Many Japanese foods, especially seafood or vegetable dishes, can be dressed in a vinegar dressing. Often times, sunomono refers to Japanese foods that are side dishes to a meal and accompany other Japanese dishes.
Generally speaking there are two types of vinegar dressing that are used on Japanese foods: Nibai-zu, which is a dressing that is made with equal amounts of vinegar and soy sauce, and sanbai-zu, which is a dressing that is made with equal amounts of vinegar, soy sauce, and mirin. (The Daily Meal)
