This is a great, light recipe. I think the angel hair is the perfect pasta for this, since it's also very thin and light.
Some tips or alterations I made:
I added more olive oil than the recipe called for (it helps flavor the pasta) and more olives. I personally don't like raw onion, so I used onion powder (liberally) instead. I was very generous with the salt (kosher) and pepper, and added garlic powder as well.
I can see how this might be bland if you aren't very liberal with the spices, and I think even if I had used onion, I'd still add the onion powder. The whole thing was VERY flavorful and had a nice blend of flavors and textures. I'd definitely make this again, and add it to my "staple summer foods."
One thing I would warn against is eating this left over. I guess the salt sweated the water out of the cucumber, and leftover this was so watery and bland it was almost inedible. Definitely eat this right after making it.
