Recipe Ingredients:

  • Cucumbers - 3
  • Salt
  • Clove garlic - 1
  • Salt to taste
  • Sesame seeds - 2tbsp
  • Sesame oil - 1 tbsp
  • Cayenne pepper - 1/2 tbsp
  • Sugar - 1 /2 tbsp


For the Cucumber Salad, cut the cucumbers in to thin slices, add salt and leave for 30-40 to marinade. Whilst the salt should have absorbed most of the the liquid, squeeze cucumber slices to remove any excess. Add salt, sesame seeds and pepper, sugar, cucumbers and crushed garlic in a bowl. Mix thoroughly.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
