Asian-Style Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Grace Lynn

These cucumbers are so tasty and addictive. This can be served as a side dish to almost any kind of meat. You can make it to any level of heat as you like. I love the crisp, crunchy, spicy and sweet taste that goes on all at once!

This is tasty and used things I had on hand. I may cut back on the Sesame OIl a bit next time but since you really don't eat all of that oil, it's not as bad as it seems. A nice compliment to an asian themed meal.
