Sweet & Spicy Cucumber Salad
Family Tested & Approved
cucumbers (peeled, or unpeeled but washed), or 1 english cucumber
1 - 2
garlic (optional, depending on your garlic preference)
handful fresh mint leaves (chopped) or 2 teaspoons dried mint leaves
red pepper flakes (add more if you prefer spicier)
seasoned rice wine vinegar
In large bowl, combine cucumbers, garlic, mint leaves, and red pepper flakes. Toss in bowl to distribute evenly.
Add rice wine vinegar. Toss again.
Cover bowl and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. (I place mine in a large plastic storage bag until serving time.)
NOTE: Sometimes I stripe-peel my cucumbers, using a potato peeler. This means that I leave strips of skin for more texture.
