For the spicy cucumber salad "iiang ban huang gua", prepare the foods listed. Ideally, you need a Chinese cucumber - long-fruited, with small pimples, but if this is not the case, a regular salad will do just fine.
Finely chop the carrots with a sharp knife.
First cut the cucumber into thin slices, then diagonally into small pieces. Do not remove the seeds under any circumstances, the Chinese prefer to leave them, because cucumber salad should be juicy.
