    Jostlori's Note:

    Once upon a time I had a similar recipe from Cooks Illustrated, but can't seem to find it. This is the closest I can come from memory. It's pretty good (pat on back...) but something is not quite the same. The amount of red pepper is for average heat - adjust to your taste! COOKING TIME IS REFRIGERATION TIME.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash cucumber very well, or peel it.
    2. 2
      Cut cucumber in half crosswise and then in half lengthwise. Remove seeds.
    3. 3
      Thinly slice cucumber and place in a glass bowl.
    4. 4
      Thickness depends on how crisp you want the cucumbers to be when finished. Thicker = Crisper, but Thinner = Yummier!
    5. 5
      Place remaining ingredients into a magic bullet jar or a small food processor bowl. Process for about 30 seconds or until the mint looks like small specks.
    6. 6
      Pour marinade over sliced cucumbers, mix well and refrigerate for at least an hour.
    7. 7
      To serve, I usually place in individual shallow white prep bowls or little japanese ceramic serving dishes, spooning a little bit of the marinade over the top.
