Chinese Pickled Cucumbers (醃製小黃瓜) Recipe: A Refreshing New Way to Pickle

Chinese pickled cucumbers are a classic Asian side dish or appetizer. The "smashed" cucumbers are seasoned with a little garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and sesame oil. The pickles are traditionally served with rice, congee (rice porridge) and soup. We think they're delicious with chicken, pork, sandwiches and burgers.

Sometimes used as a palate cleanser between courses, this easy Chinese pickled cucumber recipe is super simple to make. They would make a fun gift for friends, family and neighbors.
