Excellent! I really am not a cucumber fan and I still loved this recipe. I "sweat" the cucumbers for 2 hours. I also added minced red bell pepper(about 2 Tbs.) and a few toasted sesame seeds. Thanks for the recipe.
A very easy and tasty cucumber salad. I used 2 large english cucumbers but started dinner to late to let them sit in the salt. Nice refreshing flavor and enjoyed the bite from the red pepper flakes. Used 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and at first thought it would be to overpowering but it worked nicely after chilling in the refrigerator. Thank you Charlotte for sharing this recipe!
