Those are really good too but I like my Korean cucumber salad to have a lighter seasoning which allows the refreshing taste of cucumbers to come through.

This Cucumber Salad is refreshing but packs a good kick of spice from the Gochugaru and gochujang with that aroma of fresh garlic, scallions, and of course the sesame oil and seeds. I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe as it is easily one of my favorite side dishes of all time! Please leave me a comment below:
