  • Summary

    Smashed Cucumber Salad (拍黄瓜, pai huang gua) is a light and refreshing appetizer. The crisp cucumber is mixed with plenty of garlic, drizzled with an appetizing blend of soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar, then finished with a few drops of sesame oil. The sauce is light, yet it has a distinct sour flavor with a hint of sweetness, enhanced by the strong aroma of garlic.

    Ingredients

    • 1 English cucumbers (about 11 oz./300 g) (, tough skin removed)
    • 3 cloves garlic (, crushed and minced)
    • 1 tablespoon Chinkiang vinegar ((or rice vinegar))

    • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
