Refreshing Korean Cucumber Salad Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
This is a delicious recipe that is easy to put together. Like some other reviewers I thought that it would be to salty as set out. I rinsed the cuke slices in fresh water to get out some of the salt. It worked. I used a tbsp of cri Used red pepper and 1/4 tsp of ground cayenne pepper as we didn't have any Korean peppers. It tasted great. Thought that I was back in Seoul.

It didn't say to rinse the salt off the cucumbers. I didn't and I think it turned out very salty. I followed the directions to a tee except for that step. I believe it would have been much better had I rinsed the cucumbers before pressing them in paper towels. Will try again. I toasted the sesame seeds for 1-1/2 minutes on high in the microwave, flipping them every 15 seconds. Worked great!

This was an awesome dish. I used the same spice mixture (1/2 tsp Korean red pepper powder) as my homemade kimchi spice mixture and it was great!

I love this recipe but like the tartness n more than the sweet so I add 1/4 c water and sugar and 1/2 c vinegar which makes it perfect for me!
