Oi – this makes me happy!

Cucumber salad dressing

Korean style (with Hawkwood garlic and chilli too!)

Recommended by Clare…

Faced with cucumber glut; I was excited to discover this simple recipe for deliciously dressing-up cucumbers. In fact I have doubled my already hearty cucumber intake and served this up to a number of appreciative pals! And yes, the Korean word for cucumber is oi!


2 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil (optional, but worth it)

1 clove garlic (chopped)

1 tsp chilli, or cayenne

handful of sesame seeds

Halve lengthways and thinly slice the cucumbers. Mix the rest of the ingredients and toss with the cucumber in a bowl. Can be chilled for a while before serving.
