Growing up, this was a staple summertime salad in my house. We would go out to the backyard garden, pick the cucumbers, and then within minutes, have a simple and refreshing side. —kechin

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Peel cucumbers, but leave alternating green stripes. Slice the cumbers in half lengthwise, spoon out the seeds, and then cut into very thin half moons.
  2. Mix rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Stir until sugar and salt are dissolved.
  3. Add the cucumbers and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. I like to eat this immediately for the greatest crunch. However, my mom likes to refrigerate the salad for an hour so that the cucumbers become slightly pickled.
