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.
