Pound the cucumber to break it apart into easy to eat pieces.
Put all the flavoring ingredients in the bag.
Massage over the bag for 3 minutes, and that's it! An easy and delicious dish is done.
Story Behind this Recipe
The cucumber dish served at a certain chain restaurant was delicious, so I tried to recreate it at home.
Adjust the amount of salt to taste. It should be on the salty side if serving as pickles, and less salty if serving as a drinking appetizer. Be sure to taste and adjust the seasoning. The kombu tea is optional, but I highly suggest it.
