Smacked Cucumber Salad

This is the perfect side dish to add crunch and spice to your summer.



4 tbsp rice vinegar
3 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
2 tbsp chilli oil
2 tsp sesame seeds
1 pinch chilli flakes
2 cucumbers, approx. 450g each, ends trimmed


In a medium bowl, combine the rice vinegar, caster sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce, chilli oil, sesame seeds and chilli flakes.

Wash the cucumbers under cold water and pat dry. Use a rolling pin to smack the cucumbers on a chopping board until they split. Cut the cucumber into bite-sized pieces (approx. 2-3cm) and transfer them from the cutting board to the bowl of marinade. Stir to combine well and season with salt, to taste, if needed. Cover and marinate for a minimum of 30 mins but up to 3 days for a more intense flavour. Stir regularly during the marinating time to ensure an even coating.
