Asian Cucumber and Red Pepper Salad

Frank Gerace


This is a tweaked recipe of mine that is near and dear to me as a go-to side in the summer months.

**Use pickling cucumbers if possible to prevent the salad from being soggy.

**This is best prepared in a metal bowl to retain the chill once served.
