Compliments warm and spicy Asian foods, grilled meats, and great by itself! Even better the second day after it marinates in the fridge...if it lasts that long :-)
- Place cucumber in a colander; sprinkle with salt. Toss well. Drain for 20 minutes. Combine cucumber and bell pepper in a medium bowl.
- Combine vinegar, ginger, and oil, stirring with a whisk. Pour over cucumber mixture; toss gently to coat. Stir in crushed red pepper and black pepper.
I made this recipe with two modifications, I did not have crushed red pepper, so I used sweet garlic chili paste instead, and I also added 1/2 tsp minced garlic to the dressing...it was amazing! I served it over mixed baby greens with grilled beef teriyaki steak bites.....soooo good!
I made these to top Wasabi Tuna Burger With Thai Style Cucumbers and they were flavorful and crisp. I may try to cut them into ribbons the next time for a different plating option.
I made this for dh and his grand parents recently for the my three chefs game. The only changes I made was to omit the ginger, and to use tomatoes in the salad. Really refreshing, and easy. Thanks so much!
