Super simple to make! I was looking for something different to do with the cucumbers from my garden. This was a nice change. I omitted the cayenne pepper so that my kids could eat it too.

Experimenting with some new cuke recipes with the TONS of fresh from the garden beauties we've gotten so far this summer... This was an interesting mix of flavors, not the best but not the worst either. Only change I made was regular vs. baby carrots. Wondering how it might be different/better with lemon juice instead....

This is very good. I like the combination of the lime, chili powder and cayenne. I made one batch with out the cayenne for my daughter. Easy to make and taste very good.

Great recipe! I must admit though that I added a little more than a pinch of cayenne. I love the heat. Thank you kellieann.

This is a very good quick recipe for a refreshing cucumber salad. We enjoyed the chili powder combined with lime juice. And the cayenne adds a kick. Thanks kellieann for sharing your recipe. :)
