Cucumber Salad

This cucumber salad is one of my favorite things. It is also very similar to a quick salad my mom would make for a side dish when she would make teriyaki chicken for dinner. I’ve also made it just as a quick lunch or snack. More often then not I make this for a side dish for our Korean BBQ nights. It’s perfectly crisp and refreshing and it really helps to balance the spicy and deliciously fatty, Pork Bulgogi.
