"The crisp coolness of the cucumber with the contrasting heat of the pepper makes this a crowd pleaser. Just think 'cucumber mojito.'"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

cucumber - halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into bite-size pieces
serrano chile pepper, seeded and minced
red onion, sliced thin
chopped fresh mint, or to taste
grapeseed oil, or to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
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.
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.
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.
This was Delicious! ! So refreshing and cooling, can't wait to make this in the summer!! I only used a little bIt of chopped jalapeno and it was still Yummy! Love this too much! Thanks delish dish.
