This recipe was initially posted in response to a round the world game. Not only did it sound good but once I got around to trying it myself, it WAS good! I'm not usually a cucumber person but I really like this recipe.

This is a very nice salad, and I really enjoyed the crispness and sweetness of the green pepper without having to add any sugar. The next day it was more like pickles, but still enjoyable to eat. It doesn't have any of the tartness of pickles, so it is still a good salad.
