Korean Cucumber Salad

This is a quick and simple salad featuring cucmbers, green onions and sesame seeds. Nice crunch, and the red pepper flakes give it a kick!
Course: Salad


  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/2 tsp dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds (I use a mix of white & black seeds)
  • 1 English cucumber sliced thin
  • 1/2 green onion sliced
  • 1/2 carrot peeled & cut into thin match stick size pieces


  • Combine the first 3 ingredients in a medium size bowl.
  • In a small saute pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in sesame seeds and cook until browned, stirring frequently (about 5 minutes.) Remove from pan and add to bowl with vinegar mixture.
  • Add remaining 4 ingredients. Stir to combine. Cover. Refrigerate at least 10 minutes.
