This recipe comes from a Tom Douglas cookbook. The recipe calls for a red jalapeno, which is just a ripe version of a green jalapeno, if you can't find red, use green. You can make sauce a day ahead and keep covered in the fridge overnight, but don't add the cucumber until right before you serve. Enjoy!
