Preparation Instructions:

Slice cucumber into coins, roughly 1/4 inch thick.

Place sliced cucumbers in a large bowl or colander. Coat them with salt. Let sit for 20-30 minutes. This draws out excess moisture and makes them crunchier.

While cucumbers brine, stir together all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. (You may want to stir in scallions last.)

Gently rinse the salted cucumbers under cold water to remove excess salt, drain off water completely. You may have to rinse several times as the salad dressing can be fairly salty.

Toss cucumbers in the dressing mixture and let rest in the refrigerator for one hour.

Serve chilled with grilled fish or barbecue beef.
