Spicy Asian Cucumbers

We love cucumbers and enjoy trying different salads. We had this and it was a great addition to a stir fry meal we had. Very refreshing and you can make it as spicy as you want by adding more red pepper flakes. I think the hardest thing is getting use to calling cucumbers a fruit when I am posting a recipe for them.
