Alright-- my parents had a ton of cucumbers in their garden that needed to be used. This recipe looked promising. I'm sure if I liked the flavor, I would have given it higher reviews. This is *exactly* how it tasted... bite, bite, sweet, bite, bite, swallow, big kick of spice.
I would actually call this a tangy-sweet spicy salad. I would not make this again.
Yummalicious! And it is not even done marinating yet!
Made this a couple of weeks ago for a family dinner and was very impressed. Easy to make, with a very distinct flavor; I particularly enjoyed the cilantro. Definetly a winner, I'm making it again for a dinner party tonight!
