There is a Korean dish called O-E Muchim. 

It is a cold cucumber salad. My kids love it and love cucumbers. The recipe can be altered quite a bit and still taste good! You could slice the cucumber ahead of time too!

1 large (English or other type) cucumber cut into thin coin like slices
Salted and drained of excess water

1/2 tsp each:red pepper powder, sesame oil
1 1/2 tablespoons of rice vinegar (or more to taste)
2 tsp of sugar
1/2 tsp of sesame seeds
and 1 clove chopped garlic

It would taste good with just the vinegar and sugar too. It is like cucumbers with vinagrette! My favorite panchan!
