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.


PREP: 25 MIN. + MARINATING • MAKES: 6 SERVINGS

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

MARINADE

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.
