Tropical Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by BETHANY T.

My friend Buffy gave me this recipe. I really didn't think that it would be that great, but it really is! This salad is very light and refreshing and would be the perfect side dish to a light summer meal. I think that it would pair perfectly with grilled salmon or seared tuna. Best if made within an hour or two of serving. Does not keep well overnight.

This is a stunning recipe! Every flavor melds beautifully, and is such a happy surprise in the mouth. I put bits of this into small crisp-toasted won ton cups, topped with a cold peeled boiled shrimp, garnished with a cilantro leaf, and got raves! (I like raves.) Thanks, N2S, for a delightful new idea!
