Now that summer is officially here, I wanted to share with you my favorite gimchi to make when it’s hot — Oi Gimchi!
It’s a refreshingly light gimchi for the hot weather and goes so nicely with galbi and other grilled meats.
Since I live walking distance to a largely Middle Eastern market, I’ve been making them with Persian cucumbers, which are thinner and slightly sweeter than the Korean oi. Dare I say it? They’re almost better than the Korean cucumbers. I’ll have to make another batch, just to be sure.
Happy Summer, everyone! Stay cool like a cucumber.
