Asian-inspired Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad 2

From January 14, 2006:  This is a recipe I came up with this  past summer when I was overrun with cucumbers from the garden.  Let the salad sit for 30 minutes before serving to let the flavors combine.

Asian-inspired Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 chile, minced (optional)
1 – 3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
3 T. sugar
3 T. fish sauce (you may substitute soy sauce)

In a small bowl, combine the garlic, rice wine vinegar, sugar and fish sauce.  In a larger bowl combine cucumber, red onion, cilantro, and minced chile.  Pour dressing over the salad and toss.
