First of all…ALOHA! Today I want to share a very easy, simple and refreshing salad. You just need a few ingredients and you have a very light, tasty cucumber salad.


2 English cucumbers or 3~4 Persian cucumbers
1 teaspoon salt

½ tablespoon sugar
½ tablespoon sesame oil
½ tablespoon thinly cut fresh ginger
1~2 tablespoons apple vinegar
Hot pepper flakes to taste


Wash and cut the cucumber (1/2 in), sprinkle with salt and let it sit for 5 minutes. Drain the water from the cucumber. In a small bowl mix the sugar, apple vinegar, ginger and hot pepper flakes. Pour on the drained cucumber, mix gently and serve.

Did you know cucumbers are flowers since they have enclosed seeds and were developed from flower?
