Spicy Cucumber Salad

J. White Harris


This is my version of a salad that was served at an event I attended while living on the island of Guam. It has become a favorite for our table especially during the summer when there is an abundance of cucumbers from the garden. In addition to being a delicious salad, it makes a great topping for hot dogs and sandwiches. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
