CHINESE GARLIC SMASHED CUCUMBER SALAD (vegan)🥒✨ Say bye to boring cucumbers with this refreshing & tasty cucumber dish! 👋🏼 ⁣

This is such a nostalgic dish from my childhood. Growing up, this was my favourite way to enjoy cucumber 😍 The purpose of smashing the cucumber first is to create more “breaks” in it which allow it to soak up all this delicious dressing!⁣

This dish is crunchy, salty, sour, slightly sweet & spicy, and has a distinct aroma of garlic which is so delicious! 🤤⁣

Here is the recipe ➡️⁣

✅ 1 teaspoon sugar⁣
✅ 1 teaspoon sesame oil ⁣
✅ 1 teaspoon salt ⁣
