Dive into the refreshing flavours of summer with our newest addition – the Smashed Cucumber Salad with Crispy Chilli Oil. This vibrant dish combines the crispiness of cucumbers with the perfect kick of our spicy Crispy Chilli Oil.



  • 3 x lebanese cucumbers
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 ½ tsp sugar
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 3 tsp Crispy Chilli Oil (or more if you love it)
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • A handful of pulled coriander leaves



  • Wash the cucumbers and pat them dry with a clean tea towel.
  • Make the salad dressing by combining salt, sugar, sesame oil, light soy sauce and rice vinegar. Stir until the sugar and salt are completely dissolved. Set aside.
  • On a cutting board, lay a large knife flat against the cucumber and smash it lightly with your other hand. The cucumber will crack open into 4 sections. Repeat along the length of the cucumber. Once it’s completely open, cut it at 45-degree angle bite sized pieces.
  • In a large bowl mix the cut cucumber with the prepared dressing and garlic. Toss it well.
  • Serve garnished with sesame seeds, coriander leaves and Crispy Chilli Oil.
