I used a large cucumber for this recipe, as that was all I had on hand. I only got to have it in the fridge for 30 minutes before using but it did not matter this still was a really nice salad.
The sweet & sour combination work's really well together with the cucumber, with just the right hint of heat from the chilli (which I did cut back on a little).
The family really loved this salad and we enjoyed it so much. Such an easy recipe that will be served quite a lot over summer in this household.
Thanks **Jubes**.

Hahaha I'd like to see this last 10 days in MY fridge! Not a chance Jubes! It's yummy with just the right balance of everything-sweet, sour and spicy. Russ bought home a big English cuc (we have to take what we can get here), it had that tough skin which I peeled off but was a nice young sweet one on the inside. It worked just fine.

I love pickled cucumbers and this was yummy! I enjoyed the hot pepper in it too. Thanks! Made for ZWT 2013 for team Hot Stuff.
