Ingredients

1 Korean cucumber or 2 Kirby (pickling cucumbers)

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon Korean red chili pepper flakes (gochugaru, 고추가루 – use less if desired)

1 tablespoon chopped scallion

1/2 teaspoon garlic minced

1 teaspoon vinegar

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon sesame seeds

1 teaspoon sesame oil

Directions

Thinly slice the cucumber (1/8 to 1/4-inch thick). Toss gently with salt and set aside for about 15 minutes.

Drain excess liquid. Avoid squeezing them because they will bruise. Mix well with all of the remaining ingredients. Taste a little and adjust the seasonings if necessary.
