Japanese Pickled Cucumbers


  • 1 English Cucumber
  • 1/4 cup  Sugar
  • 1 cup Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Sesame Oil (I prefer Black Sesame Oil)
  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper


  1. Thinly slice cucumber (skinned or not by personal preference) and place into a container.
  2. Mix sugar, vinegar, sesame oil, and ground pepper in a separate bowl.
  3. Pour over cucumbers, be sure all cucumbers are soaked.
  4. Refrigerate in a sealed container for at least 3 hours.

  1. I’ve really got to give this a go. This is a kind of sweet and sour cucumber I guess? Will let you know the verdict.

    • Good luck with the recipe, I hope you like it! I get cravings for these cucumbers all year around – it was surprising that I couldn’t find the exact same recipe online though!
