About this recipe: This refreshing Korean cucumber salad is easy to prepare and an ideal side dish to a larger meal. Allow time to chill in the fridge before serving for best results.
Red pepper flakes can be substituted for the Korean red pepper powder.
This was an awesome dish. I used the same spice mixture (1/2 tsp Korean red pepper powder) as my homemade kimchi spice mixture and it was great! - 17 Jul 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this recipe but like the tartness n more than the sweet so I add 1/4 c water and sugar and 1/2 c vinegar which makes it perfect for me! - 13 Jul 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It didn't say to rinse the salt off the cucumbers. I didn't and I think it turned out very salty. I followed the directions to a tee except for that step. I believe it would have been much better had I rinsed the cucumbers before pressing them in paper towels. Will try again. I toasted the sesame seeds for 1-1/2 minutes on high in the microwave, flipping them every 15 seconds. Worked great! - 10 Aug 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
