This refreshing side dish is great in the summer. I like to put in a whole tray of ice - the colder the better! I don't know how to make mool kimchi (water kimchi), so this is a quick and easy substitute.
1 jalapeno (I like it spicy)
1 green onion
2 tablespoons gook ganjang (soup soy sauce)
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons gochugaru (red pepper flakes)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3 cups water
minari or miyuk (seaweed)
Slice the cucumbers in half and then into thin strips. Chop the green onion and jalapeno into small pieces. Put all veggies in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and allow to marinate for about 5-10 minutes. Add water and ice. Taste and add more soy sauce if it isn't salty enough. Miyuk is often added to this dish, but I never use it. I tossed in some minari in here, but it's not for everyone - it has a very strong taste. Enjoy!
