<Miwa’s tips> ※Watch more on YouTube!

1; Asian cucumbers are thinner than English cucumbers. You can use persian cucumber, carrot and daikon radish as a substitute.

2; You can keep it for 3-4 days, but if you taste it too salty, feel free to discard the marinade.

<Storage time>

Keep it in a zip bag in the fridge for 3-4 days.
