You’ll be a smashing success when you bring Chef John's addictively good salad to the barbeque or potluck. All you need to do is cover cucumbers with plastic wrap and smash with whatever you like, which will draw out better flavor into your salad. Cut the results into smaller pieces, then mix with sugar and salt to draw liquid out of the cukes. Then toss with a dressing of crushed garlic, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and red pepper flakes. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve with ribs or other good things from your grill!
