You could always pickle these small to medium–sized cukes, but what about a smashed cucumber salad? Just quarter the cucumber and then smash each piece, using the flat side of a chef's knife and your hand. Mix with chinkiang vinegar, chile oil, and maybe some garlic and cilantro. Or go cool and creamy by mixing with yoghurt, dill and a few slices of red onions.
Contents: 2 pounds of pickling cucumbers that are 3 to 5 inches in length
