I'm just posting this so I can find the recipe later. Millions of thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sibylla or giving it to me ages ago.

Cucumber Kimchi

1 cucumber, peeled, halved, and sliced
1 T salt
2 cloves garlic, minced fine
1 T. white or rice vinegar
1/2 T. sesame oil
1/2 T. soy sauce
1/2 t. sugar
2 green onions, minced (green part only)
1 t. crushed Korean red pepper

Slice cucumber and salt, then leave alone for at least half an hour. Rinse three or four times. Drain the rinsed cucumber for a little while. Once it's mostly dry, stick it in a bowl. Add the minced garlic. Now's the part where it gets difficult ..
I think you'd want about a tablespoon or so of vinegar, maybe half that of sesame oil, and of soy sauce.
Maybe a teaspoon of sugar.
If you've got green onions, mince a couple of those up (except the white part) and toss those in, as well.
I mostly go on smell, so I'd recommend you do the same.
Add hot pepper and combine well. Let marinate for 1/2 hour, then eat.

I usually just use plain old red pepper flakes, which work well enough for me. Red wine vinegar also seems to work fine when rice vinegar is not available.
