Cucumber Kim Chee

This week I decided to try a recipe tutorial.  This is one of my favorite pupu dishes currently.  It is also so simple to make and great for potlucks. 

Kim Chee is a Korean dish and is made with all sorts of different vegetables.  The most popular one being with Napa cabbage. 

Ingredients are:

4 cucumbers {just regular cucumbers work best}
1 teaspoon Hawaiian sea salt
1 bunch green onion
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 small onion
Kim Chee Base

Semi peel cucumbers like this.

Then you want to cube the 4 cucumbers into bite size pieces.  Cut bunch of green onion into inch, inch and 1/2 in length.  Cut onion into slices.  Mix together with the seal salt and let stand on the counter for 1 hour covered.  Mixing every so often.  The sea salt will bring out the liquid in the cucumber.

Then you want to shake 3 shakes of this into the cucumbers and add sesame oil.  Taste, if enough spice for you then chill for 1 hour or until ready to serve.  If you like it spicy than add more of the base until you like it.  Then chill.  I have had a batch in the fridge for up to at least 1 week if it last that long. :)  Enjoy!

Will be linking up with these awesome PARTIES!!!!

Thanks to Stephenie Mahiai for sharing the recipe.
