This is a simple cucumber dish for garnishing mul naengmyeon or bibim naengmyeon, although you can use it as a side dish or you can use it in other noodle dishes too. The sweet and sour flavor in this cucumber dish gives extra flavor to the main dish. 🙂
Yield: ⅔ Cups
Short Korean Lesson
- Hae (해) = Sun
- Dahl (달) = Moon
- 1 Cup Cucumber
- ½ tsp Salt
- 2 tsp Sugar
- 2 tsp Vinegar
Cut about ⅓ of a cucumber in half lengthwise, and then slice the two halves to get 1 cup.
In a bowl, add the cucumber and ½ tsp of salt. Set it aside for about 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, rinse the cucumber in cold water twice and drain the water.
Mix the salted cucumber, 2 tsp of sugar, and 2 tsp of vinegar.
That was simple, right? Keep this in the refrigerator and use it whenever you serve your noodles. Try it someday. 🙂
