1. wash your cucumbers then slice off the ends. place between a pair of wooden chopsticks and slice in an angle all the way down. flip and repeat. 2. Put into a bowl and sprinkle some salt over to draw out any excess moisture. set aside for 5 mins then rinse and drain well. alternately, you can skip this step and simply marinade your cucumber in the prepared sauce and keep in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. 3. In another bowl, add in the vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sweetener, garlic and chilli oil. add in the cucumbers and mix well to coat. 4. Transfer onto a plate, spoon on all of the sauce and garnish with sesame seeds and extra chilli oil. enjoy!
