    Merry Cook's Note:

    After a shopping trip to Costco I had an over abundance of English cucumbers and red bell peppers so I came up with this recipe. I love things that are sweet, tangy, and spicy so it seemed like the natural thing to make. This has become a favorite of mine and a big hit among friends & family!

      These cucumbers are very good and a bit spicy. I only made half the dressing, but probably needed just 1/4 of what the recipes calls for. We didn't want this to be too sweet, so I added only 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, which was just right for us.
