Chamorro Cucumber Slices

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by SilentCricket

From the southern Pacific island of Guam where we lived for 4 years! These were a favorite at our church potluck suppers and picnics with barbequed chicken and ribs! Very refreshing in hot and humid weather! (The name "Chamorro" comes from the native people of Guam...very warm, and friendly people...)

This was very easy to prepare and tasted great. If you are tired of the same old cucumber salad, this is a nice change of pace. I love most cucumber salads, so when I saw this, I had to give it a try and I am glad I did. Thank you for sharing this tasty and unique recipe.
