Don’t be deterred by the vibrant red chilli powder. The Korean chilli powder used in this recipe is very mild and doesn’t make a dish particularly hot, instead it has a slight smoky flavour and the fruity-sweet note. That is why they are used in such large quantities. It is a staple in Korean cuisine that can be found in most of Korean grocery stores. 

This refreshing cucumber salad is made with cucumbers, apple, garlic, fish sauce, lemon juice, sugar, sesame oil and Korean chili powder. It is crunchy, slightly sweet and tangy with a bit of heat and will kickstart your taste buds. It is an excellent complement to any of your main dishes.
