Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



What a great way to use up those extra cucumbers! I added extra crushed red pepper to add more spice, other than that, the recipe is great as is!

Prep time was a litte longer for me (30 mins) The salad accompanied eggrolls which I served alongside.This made for a delicous light snack. I also used some of Sweet Chili Sauce as a dip for the eggrolls.

Nice cucumbers!

These cucumbers have a little sweetness, a bit more tartness and a tiny bit of heat. I need to make another batch!
