    About this recipe: When I lived in Korea, I was shown this salad that is made with cucumbers, spring onions, carrots and sesame seeds. It's delicious with Bulgogi (Korean barbecued beef) that's also on this site!

    • 4 tablespoons vinegar
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

    • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 spring onion, sliced
    • 1/2 carrot, sliced into matchsticks
