Smashed Cucumbers

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Busters friend

Saw this in the LA Times Food & Drink section. Thought it sounded awesome & am stashing for when the second crop of cukes come in. My first crop of Burpee Dual-Purpose cucumbers was brief but awesome until TS Cristobal brought the dreaded summer flush of pickle worms through. Replanting now so more cukes in 5 weeks!

YUMMY! I was looking for ways to use black vinegar and this came up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice cucumbers crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Using the flat side of a cleaver, whack the pieces once or twice so they break into smaller pieces.
  2. Transfer cucumbers to a bowl and toss with garlic, sesame oil, vinegar and salt. Marinate for at least 15 minutes or up to several hours before serving.
