Cut the cucumber in half and using a mallet or a heavy frying pan, smash the cucumber until it starts to break down into about 3 chunks, as seen on top picture on the right. Then slice into about 1 inch pieces. Add to bowl and set aside.
Make you sauce, in a small bowl add the rest of the ingredients together and mix until sugar is dissolved. Toss the dressing with the cucumbers and cover. Allow to marinate up to 24 hours.
