cucumbers - sliced lengthwise, seeds scooped out, and cut into 1/2-inch thick half rounds
garlic, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons
toasted sesame oil
hot chili oil
red pepper flakes
We loved it! I didn't have sesame oil so I just used a bit of olive oil and some sesame seeds. I also added a lot more rice vinegar, maybe about 1/4 cup, and water , 1/4 cup, to the mix so that the cucumbers were slightly swimming. I put them in the fridge for an hour or so. Very yummy and my guests loved them as well.
This was okay, husband didn't care for it.
These are delish. We frequent a Korean Mandu joint here in DC where they serve a cucumber kimchi dish that tastes just like this. Thanks for the recipe. Love it!
loved this.. used only 1/3 of the sugar.. didn't have chili oil so i added a teaspoon of chili sauce.. used regular white vinegar since i didn't have the rice vinegar.. doubled the garlic and crushed it instead of slicing.. marinated for an hour and a half.. and it was awesome.. ty so much for the recipe
I used English cucumbers to make it more firm. Held up several days.
Very good! Substituted white vinegar for rice vinegar, otherwise made as written.
I absolutely love the sauce. I have made this many times now, sometimes it's with cucumbers and sometimes with shredded tofu skin. Both of which is very delicious. I did find that if I were to follow the recipe, it would be too salty for me, so I basically only put in half of the called for salt. I also found that it is not a good idea to soak the cucumbers in the dressing over night, as they get very soggy and the whole thing gets very watery. I don't sprinkle salt on the cucumbers either, as I found that makes them give off water even more, causing them to become soggy. When I make it with cucumbers I basically dip the cucumbers in the dressing or I pour the dressing over them right before I eat them.
everyone loves them
