Japanese Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kay D.

I don't really remember where I got this recipe; off the internet somewhere, I'm sure. This tasty little salad is just the thing to cool you off in the summer; very refreshing, and so quick and easy. Just remember if you're sensitive to cucumbers (I am) try to use the "burpless" varieties.

Fantastic side that goes with many main courses. The flavor of this dish hits all over your mouth. A salty beginning, cool fresh middle and a good heat at the end. Definitely use rice vinegar over white. To kick it up even more use 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/4 tsp cayanne, and 1 or 2 cloves of garlic. Tastes like a cucumber Kimchi.
