    Sue Lau's Note:

    This has a light spiciness to it, but if you like it even more, adding a few flakes of crushed red pepper makes an interesting addition to this salad.

      This was a wonderful side dish to some Asian grilled salmon. Since I used the English cucumber, I didn't bother to seed it, and I cut back on the salt and it still turned out great. Thank you Sue L for sharing the recipe and another winner.
