This is an easy yet delicious Korean side dish that everyone can make at home!
1 cucumber, diced/sliced
1 tablespoons salt
1 spring onion, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (gochugaru)
1 clove of garlic, minced (add more if you love garlic!)
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
Cut your cucumber into desired shapes. We recommend cutting thicker in size for extra crunch!
Add the salt to the diced/sliced cucumbers and mix well, let it sit for at least 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, wash the cucumber thoroughly, pat them dry and transfer them into a big bowl.
Add sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame seeds, sesame oil, crushed garlic, and korean red chilli pepper flakes (gochugaru) into a small bowl and mix well.
Add the mixture to the cucumber and make sure every slice is covered with the sauce!
It is now ready to eat but we recommend keeping the cucumber in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving for more flavour!
Serve it as a side dish with rice or noodles! Have fun!
