Chinese Smashed Cucumber Salad


  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce  
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small or 1/2 medium size shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 lb Persian cucumber


  1. Whisk soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, salt and sesame oil until sugar has dissolved and thicken. Mix in garlic and shallot.
  2. Cut the ends of cucumbers and smash them down with a side (wide) part of knife a few times until they are broken . If you don’t feel comfortable using knife, you could use rolling pin, a sauce pan or flat part of meat tenderizer. Then cut them into 1-inch long pieces. Remove some big seeds if there’s any to prevent from watery salad.
  3. Add cucumber into the dressing mix everything together. You can serve it immediately or keep in a refrigerator for a couple of hours before serve. Enjoy!
