QUICK Cucumber Kimchi Salad inspired by MommyTang​! need kitchen gloves for this recipe!

8-10 Kirby cucumbers
Kosher salt
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed
low-sodium soy sauce
gochugaru (Korean chili flakes) - do NOT use other types of chili flakes for this
coconut sugar
black pepper
toasted sesame seeds

Stripe-peel your cucumbers and slice them into rounds about 1/2-inch thick. Place them in a stain-resistant bowl and sprinkle some kosher salt on them. Don't worry, you will rinse them after they brine the cucumbers. Using kitchen gloves, massage the salt into the cucumber slices. Set aside for 10-15 minutes.
After brining, rinse the cucumbers with cold water one time to remove excess salt. Drain well.
Add crushed garlic, a small amount of soy sauce, gochugaru to taste, coconut sugar to taste, a few grinds of black pepper, and some toasted sesame seeds, Mix well with GLOVED hand. Chill before serving!
