Cucumber Salad: Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound cucumber, sliced
  • 1 ounce assorted colored bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 Chinese parsley, chopped
  • 1 clove shallot, sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • dash chili sauce or Tabasco
  • pinch salt

Preparation:

  1. In a pot, add sugar, vinegar, water, salt and chili sauce and bring to a boil, then let it cool down. (Can make ahead of time and refrigerate) In a bowl, combine slices of cucumber, shallot, bell pepper and Chinese parsley and chill in the refrigerator. Pour dressing on salad right before serving.
  2. To avoid the cucumber getting soggy, do not add sauce to cucumber until ready to serve. For a crunchier cucumber salad, make sure to chill ingredients.
