Directions

  1. Place sliced cucumbers in a large bowl and sprinkle evenly with sea salt; allow liquid to drain from cucumbers, about 15 minutes. Spoon cucumbers onto sheets of paper towels; wrap paper towels around cucumbers and wring out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Mix rice vinegar, rice wine, sesame oil, honey, lemon juice, green onion, sesame seeds, walnuts, garlic, Korean red pepper powder, and ground black pepper in a bowl; add cucumbers and toss. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until flavors blend, at least 30 minutes.

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!

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!

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!
