Spicy Cucumber Salad

Another recipe from our May cooking class brought to us by Carol Nystrom, as a side to the homemade pizza we were making. These are delicious and perfect for that summer picnic, now that cukes are coming in season. Thanks, Carol

  1. 3/4 cup Rice Wine Vinegar

  2. 1/2 cup sugar

  3. 2 teaspoons Kosher

  4. 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, can adjust according to how "hot" you like things

  5. 1 TBLS. plus 1 teaspoon finely grated, peeled fresh ginger

  6. 4 lbs. seedless cucumbers, halved crosswise

Whisk together vinegar, red pepper flakes, ginger, and sugar in a large bowl for dressing. Using a vegetable peeler, cut cucumber lengthwise into ribbons and add to bowl with dressing, tossing to combine. Salt to taste. Chill at least 15 minutes or more, stirring once before serving. Serves 8
