This was easy and very tasty. I made it ahead of time and it went well with an Asian lemon "schnitzel" chicken I made

Crisp & Spicy Cucumber Salad

Excerpt From: Editors at Taste of Home. “Taste of Home Holidays & Celebrations.

Sweet-hot Asian flavors using rice vinegar, sesame oil and cayenne will light up everyone’s taste buds! Double the recipe for large crowds.


2 small English cucumbers, thinly sliced
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
1 large sweet red pepper, julienned
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 serrano or jalapeno pepper, seeded and thinly sliced, optional. The seeds and the piths have the “hot” stuff. If you want it milder remove the white stuff from the interior


1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon each salt, garlic powder and pepper
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

Optional toppings: minced fresh cilantro, chopped peanuts and additional sliced green onion

1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a small bowl, mix marinade ingredients, stirring to dissolve sugar. Pour over vegetables; toss to combine. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes or overnight.

2. Serve with a slotted spoon. If desired, sprinkle with toppings.

NOTE Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face - frankly this is a bit alarmist and unnecessary. Just don’t rub your eyes until you have washed your hands.
