I’ve been making this spicy and refreshing cucumber salad every week since the weather started to warm up. It’s easy to prepare and goes well with all kinds of food. I mainly make it as a side dish for Asian-style meals but have also loved adding this on top of crackers and creamy Brie cheese.



  1. Thinly slice cucumbers using a mandolin or knife. Mix in a bowl with the kosher salt and set aside.
  2. Mince garlic and finely slice green onions and set aside in a separate bowl.
  3. Squeeze liquid out of salted cucumbers using your hands and set aside in a colander. Pour out any remaining liquid.
  4. In the same bowl, combine the cucumbers and the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Serve immediately or fridge.
