Great cucumber dish. I made this to go along with our pad thai the other night and it complimented it perfectly. The cool crunchy cukes went great with the warm noodles. I love it! Thank you so much for introducing us to a new cuke recipe, we loved it, especially the combo of the jalapeno with the cilantro (never would of thought to add to cucumbers)

This was soooo good! I used the little japanese cucumbers that don't have seeds. So crunchy and tasty!

This was edible, but lacked any real flavor. Sorry, but I wouldn't make it again.
