How to Make Sweet & Spicy Cucumber Salad
- 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.
