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.

Marinate the cucumbers:
2 Marinate the cucumbers:

In a bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers and remaining vinegar. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
