Spicy Cucumber Salad

Author: Dave & Sandy
Serves 4


2 large cucumbers 3 Tbs. soy sauce
¼  tsp. crushed red pepper 1 tsp. sesame oil
1 Tbs. white vinegar

Wash cucumbers and pat dry.  Pound them lightly all over with a kitchen mallet.

Trim off the ends.  Peel and cut cucumbers lengthwise into quarters.  Cut or scrape away seeds.

Cut each cucumber strip into 1 1/2" lengths.  Trim corners of each piece to make them neater.  Put pieces in a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients.

Chill and serve.
