Spicy Korean Cucumber Salad

I know in summer or on hot days you don't eat spicy food but I can eat spicy any day. This is a very famous Korean salad made with cucumber and the kick from the Korean red pepper paste gives a unique taste. You can have it as it is or pair with some BBQ or rice dish. I started eating as it is and then finish it off with my stir fry dish. It will be done in a few minutes and gone in a few seconds.

Ingredients : 

2 English cucumber cut in to bite size chunks
2 green onions, cut finely
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp Gochujang, Korean red pepper paste
2 tbsp Korean red pepper flakes (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp white sesame seeds

Method : 

Cut the cucumber in bite-size chunks and keep it aside.

Cut green onions and garlic and keep it aside.

Combine Korena red pepper paste, flakes, salt, sugar, sesame oil, sesame seeds in a bowl.

Add garlic, cucumber, and onion and mix it with your hands or wear gloves and mix it hands.

Enjoy as it is, or with warm white rice, BBQ dishes.
