Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by MsPia

The first time I made this salad I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so I made 2 substitutions that came out VERY GOOD. Instead of the fresh pepper I used dry chili de arbol (pretty spicy)and I used mint instead of cilantro. The thinner you sliced the cucumber, the better. Enjoy!
