I love crushed cucumber salad. It is a perfect blend of spicy, tart and salty. The cucumber give it a fresh crunch and of course it is garlicky. For this version, I used Chiu Chow chili oil.
Start by cutting up your cucumber into bite sized pieces.
Smash each one.
I ended up cutting them smaller.
Add some chili oil. If you like spicy, add the amount in the recipe. If you don’t add a little less.
Add some fresh crushed garlic.
and some black vinegar to make it tart.
don’t forget the sesame oil.
Stir together and let marinade for a couple hours or overnight.
Serve as a sized dish and enjoy with some rice.
Spicy Crushed Cucumber Salad

- 1 garlic clove crushed
- 1 tsp sesame oil
Cut the cucumber into bite sized pieces and smash with the flat side of your cleaver. Add all ingredients together and mix well. Marinade for a couple hours or overnight.
Enjoy as a side dish.
