    The chopped red pepper gives a fairly spicy touch to the salad dressing. If you do not like spicy food use less. The red pepper-lime juice combination gives a far-eastern touch to the salad.

    Fresh cilantro has loyal friends, but it also has fanatic enemies. If you belong to the second category, replace cilantro with parsley. I tried it both ways. I confess I like the cilantro version more…

    Prep Time: 5 minutes

    Ingredients

    • 5 small, or, 2 large cucumbers
    • 2 garlic cloves, thinly chopped
    • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
    • 2 small red peppers, thinly chopped
    • 4 tbsp olive oil
    • 4 tbsp fresh cilantro, thinly chopped
    • salt, pepper

    Instructions

    1

    Cut the cucumbers into very thin slices. If you have a mandolin slicer, use it; otherwise use a very sharp knife. Put the cucumber slices in a salad bowl.

    2

    Add chopped cilantro (or parsley).

    3

    Prepare the dressing by mixing all remaining ingredients. Shake well. I use a glass jar. I put all the dressing ingredients in it and shake. Ready in a minute.

    4

    Pour the dressing over the cucumbers and cilantro and mix well.

    5

    It is better to let the cucumber salad with fresh cilantro and lime to marinate in the fridge, for about an hour. If you do so, have in mind that the flavors will intensify. So, be careful with those red peppers! And do not forget to let it thaw slightly before serving.
