Korean Cucumber side dish

This is a delicious and easy side dish.
You can skip the salting the cucumber part.  Reason for salting is to get all the liquid out of the cucumber.  That way the dish not too watery.


1 English cucumber sliced 1/4 inches thick.
1 Tbsp of salt
1 scallion chopped
1/2 Tbsp of grated ginger
1 clove of garlic chopped
1/2 Tsp of sesame oil
1 Tbsp of soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp of sugar
Pinch of red pepper flakes

Salt the sliced cucumber and let sit for 1/2 hour to an hour.  (This is optional)
Rinse well and pat cucumbers dry.
Add all ingredients and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.

This dish is great for many cuisines.
Great on sandwiches, add to your favorite salad, Also great side dish for seafood.
