Recipe: 酸辣凉拌黄瓜

Today’s super simple recipe is 酸辣凉拌黄瓜!

In simple English it’s Cucumber Salad and it’s one of our favourite vegetable dishes.

Ingredients:
1 medium-sized Japanese cucumber
2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 tbsp black vinegar
1 tsp chili oil
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Method:
1. Use the flat side of the cleaver to smash the cucumber. Then, cut the smashed cucumbers into bite-sized pieces and place them in a heat-resistant bowl.
2. Add the chopped garlic, black vinegar, chili oil and salt to the cucumber.
3. Heat up the oil for a few seconds and pour it straight on the cucumber mixture.

Serve it with rice, noodles, bread, or just have it on its own.

Note: Some people add sugar, chopped chili, or use sesame oil. Some people just mix the cucumber mixture with the sesame oil, skipping the hot oil process. And some use more chili oil, vinegar and garlic. It all depends on you. Need more heat? Use more chili! Feel it’s too spicy? Add some sugar! Easy, right?
