    tigerduck's Note:

    A lovely crunchy salad which takes a bit more time than a simple cucumber salad, but it's really worth it! Goes well as a starter or a side dish with a chinese meal. Cooking time includes leaving the cucumbers in salted water for 20 minutes and standing time (to develop the flavour of the salad) of 2 hours.

      Wow! You even can use the leftover dressing for a smaller salad later.

      This was very different than any cucumber salad I've had and I loved it! I used a jalapeno (sliced seeds and all) because I always have them on hand. I also used splenda in place of regular sugar. I really enjoyed this...so crunchy and delicious. I thought there were going to be leftovers for me today but db ate them all. I did put the leftover dressing back in the fridge so I can just drizzle it over a salad today. I will make this again.
