This is a refreshing, Asian inspired cucumber salad. I got this from the Williams Sonoma "Cooking from the Farmers Market" cookbook. The sugar listed in the ingredients list was not in the original recipe, but I added it to suit my taste. Cook time is maximum marinating time.

Thanks so much for this interesting twist of a salad. I did not have cilantro, and I did add the sugar. I served this as a salad with fried rice noodles and walnut chicken meal. I will try this one again for sure.
