I like this salad in the summer with our BBQ evenings. It is tart and a little hot. If you don't do hot so well, use one pepper.


  1. Slice the cucumbers lengthwise and remove seeds with a spoon or melon baller.
  2. Slice each half into 1/2 inch slices.
  3. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with the salt.
  4. Toss gently and let sit for 30 minutes.
  5. Drain well.
  6. Place the cucumbers in a serving bowl and add the chilies, lime juice, and garlic.
  7. Toss well.
  8. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour before serving.

This is delightful! I made it for lunch and ate it all. I've never had cucumber and jalepeno together before...didn't know what I was missing. Thanks for an unusual, refreshing, and delicious salad recipe, Miss Annie! I'll make this one often.

yum! I used chili pepper spice and it worked great.

I used only one pepper fearing that not everyone in my family would like it too spicy, but this left it a little bland (for my tastes). Very nice, very cool summer sidedish.
