  • 3 cups cucumbers, sliced
  • 2 green onions, slices

  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes you can also use the Gochgaru, which is more authentic, but I didn't have that!

  • Combine green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, crushed red pepper, honey, and 1 teaspoon sesame seeds in a small container. Pour over the cucumbers and mix well. Top with the remaining sesame seeds.
    You can serve immediatly or you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container up to 2 days.
