Cucumber Kimchi

I am not sure what is up with me lately, but I love making all kinds of kimchi. I got this recipe from Chi. Xuan from VF. She was right, you can finish this batch in one day. I made this yesterday, and it's almost all gone today. They are crispy, and delicious.

This is a close picture of cucumber kimchi. The color turned out really nice.

First, you seeded the cucumbers. Then you added salt and let them sit for at least 30 minutes. And mixed well.

Below are the ingredients needed for this recipe:
red onion, chives, garlic, white onion, spring onion, ginger and chilli powder.

In a separate bowl, I added all the ingredients together.

Then I added the cumcumbers in the bowl.

Mixed well. I added more chilli powder.

Put them in the fridge for at least 2 hours, and they are ready.

You should defnitely try this recipe. It's easy, and very good. This will go well with any types of meat. Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love kimchi too especially it's BBQ season. This would be great with grilled chicken or ribs or any types of meat. Let me know how it turns out.
