Stuffed Cucumber Kimchi

Stuffed cucumber kimchi is one of those hot/cold dishes so welcomed on a sunny summer day. Countries with hot climates use chilis in abundance, and Korea is no exception. The heat from the chilis causes sweat, which cools the body as it evaporates, while the cold, crispness of the cucumbers refreshes. It is the national dish of Korea, where no meal is served without at least one bowl of this spicy, condiment-like salad. I had this korean side dish when we visited one of the restaurants in South Korea. Not my favorite...ehehehhe!

Yung Kimchi nila ang equivalent nang atsara natin hindi ba? Ang Korean dishes ay similar sa mga Japanese dishes. Mas type ko ang mga Chinese dishes, lol. Pero siyempre, ang pinakapaborito ko ay ang native dishes natin, lol. Thanks for the yummy post. God bless you all always.
