  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce

  1. Dry cucumber with a paper towel. Place cucumber on a large cutting board and carefully use a cleaver to crush it. Then cut it into bite size pieces and place them into a bowl. Top with garlic.
  2. Combine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, salt and sesame oil in a small bowl and mix well.
