Today, I will show you how to make a pickled cucumber side dish. You can make your own pickled cucumbers at home; you can also simply buy pickled cucumbers in a Korean or Asian store. This side dish is simple to make and it can be used in all four seasons; however, it is especially good during the summer. Someday, I will also post a recipe for homemade pickled cucumbers. As always, I hope that you will like this.
