This is an Indonesian salad. I found the recipe in my Extending the Table cookbook, and since I have an explosion of cucumbers in my garden right now, I am trying every possible variation of cucumber salad! :) Chilling time is the cook time.

Made per the recipe, using persian cucumbers which don't need to be peeled. Nice balanced seasonings (I don't see any optional chilies - made per the recipe using black pepper). So easy too. Thanks for sharing.

This falls into the 5-star category because not only is it good, but it is simple, quick to prepare, the flavors meld beautifully, and just look at the nutrition facts! I didn't add the optional chili peppers, because nobody else in my family likes chili heat :-( But that is ok, because as is, this recipe is a winner! Thanks, CraftScout! Made for ZWT 4, Mamma Mia's!
