Broken Chinese cucumbers have recently become a popular snack with us. And this is not strange. It is not difficult to do and, if you like it, it is absolutely impossible to tear yourself away from broken cucumbers. They can be served as a side dish and as a salad. If desired, cashew nuts can be added to the cucumbers and the salad will acquire a new interesting texture, which does not at all contradict its Chinese origin. Connoisseurs of broken cucumbers believe that cucumbers should be beaten mercilessly, so that they crack with a crunch. You can hit with a knife or even a rolling pin. This simple trick will allow pickling cucumbers in a matter of minutes. The cucumbers then literally need to be broken with a knife into small pieces. This is how the Chinese themselves prepare them.
