Ingredients you’ll need

To make this delectable cucumber salad, gather the following ingredients:

  • 500g Persian or mini cucumbers, washed and patted dry.
  • 1.5 tbsp salt, to draw out extra moisture from the cucumbers.
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced.
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil, for an aromatic touch.
  • 1 tbsp chilli oil, to add a hint of spiciness.
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar, for a tangy kick.
  • 2 tbsp mirin, to enhance the overall flavor.
  • 1 tsp Stevia sweetener, for a touch of sweetness.

How to prepare the cucumber salad

  1. Start by cutting off both ends of the cucumbers and slicing them into 1cm thickness. This will give your salad the perfect crunch.

  2. In a bowl, mix the cucumbers with 1.5 tbsp of salt. Make sure every piece is well coated. Let them sit for 30-45 minutes. This step will help draw out any excess moisture from the cucumbers, giving them a crisp texture.

  3. After the designated time, rinse the cucumbers thoroughly to remove the salt. Pat them dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture.

  4. In another bowl, combine the minced garlic, sesame oil, chilli oil, rice vinegar, mirin, and Stevia sweetener. Mix them well to create a flavorful marinade.

  5. Add the marinade to the cucumbers and stir gently to ensure every cucumber slice is coated. Listen to the satisfying crunch as you mix.

  6. It’s time to let the flavors mingle! Cover the bowl and chill the cucumber salad in the fridge for at least an hour, or for an even tastier experience, leave it overnight. This will allow the flavors to develop and create an explosion of taste.

Now that you have the secret recipe, it’s time to enjoy your homemade Din Tai Fung cucumber salad. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or simply craving a refreshing snack, this dish will be a hit every time.
