Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

If you’re grilling, preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Oil the grill grates. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the cucumbers into rounds. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. In a bowl, combine the sliced white bottoms of the scallions, tahini, sesame oil, soy sauce, half the vinegar, half the hoisin sauce, and 2 tablespoons of water.
