What a wonderful salad and a nice change from our normal cucumber salad!!! I made this as written, but scaled back for just the two of us. This is so similar to ours for the first 6 ingredients, except we use apple cider vinegar and no sugar. We enjoyed the slightly sweet heat to the cucumbers!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.

We loved this spicy/sweet's so refreshing on a hot summer day! I can see it being doubled or tripled for those who have lots to feed...but for hubby and was just perfect...I served it as a side...but next time I think I will throw in some cooked shrimp to let them marinade along with the other ingredients for a nice lunch dish...this is a keeper...thanks for posting it...=)
