Sesame-Cucumber Salad Recipe

Sesame-Cucumber Salad Recipe


4 English cucumbers, thinly sliced crosswise
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup rice vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
Scant 1 tsp. red chile flakes
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
6 green onions



Place the cucumbers, 3/4 tsp. salt, and the sugar in a large bowl. Toss to coat the cucumbers evenly with the salt and sugar. Let stand for 30 minutes.

Transfer to a colander, rinse, and drain well, then press out the excess moisture with your hands.

In a serving bowl, stir together the vinegar, garlic, chile flakes, and sesame seeds.

Add the cucumbers and toss to coat.

Thinly slice the green onions, including the tender green parts, and sprinkle them over the top.

Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 2 hours or overnight. Serve the salad cold.
