Out of a WW cookbook called "In Season" dated 1999. The longer they marinate the hotter their flavor gets. This make-ahead salad transports well for all those outdoor Barbecues. Cooking time is chill time. Hope you enjoy!
- 1⁄3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
- Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir well.
- Add cucumber slices; stir well.
- Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
Wow, these cucumbers are really good. Delicious on a salad and no calories to speak of. Will have these in the fridge all the time.
Wow - this is a great salad to set off a Weight Watcher meal. I used Splenda and I believe with that substitute it would be zero points on the new Points Plus program. I served it with hamburgers and it was a satisfactory way to omit the chips or fries. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
I followed directions as listed except for doubling the hot pepper flakes (DH loves spicy stuff) and this turned out perfect. Perfect combination of sweet and tangy with a zip of hot. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe.
