Spiky Cucumber Salad

Spiky Cucumber Salad
Tonight's side salad uses up some of these pesky cucumbers that are still lingering around.  I know from experience that even one mound can produce enough cukes to feed a small army (which is why we did not plant them this year).  We like cucumbers but buying a couple at the Farmer's Market helps keep my sanity!

This salad is light and refreshing with an asian twist.  I really have enjoyed having a mandoline for making julienne cuts - I could not imagine doing by hand, nor would I :-)

The ingredients


Make a dressing from above and pour over the cucumbers



Chill and enjoy!
