The crisp coolness of the cucumber with the contrasting heat of the pepper makes this a crowd pleaser. Just think 'cucumber mojito.'

This is an easy-to-follow recipe and the results are interesting. Frankly though the result didn't meet with our palate. We were wondering what it would taste like without the mint and then later I thought maybe sweet basil might work better. Still a bit sweet but not minty. Read More

The lime juice fresh mint and the serrano are the perfect partners for this crisp cucumber salad. A real burst of freshness with just the right amount of "heat" for us. Read More

Delightful! Went very well with a spicy meal. Even though this has hot chile (I used a jalapeno instead of serrano it's what I had) it is still a cool and refreshing salad with the cucumber and mint. I think I'll use a bit less sugar next time but still enjoyed this quite a bit. Read More
