Step by Step Method

Step 1

Add the garlic, red wine vinegar, and salt to a large bowl and stir to combine and dissolve with a whisk. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, grate the cucumber into a medium bowl. With your hands, gently squeeze the water out from the cucumber over the sink. Place the cucumber back in the bowl. Slice the pepper into thin strips, dice, and then add to the vinaigrette bowl along with the cucumber and half of the parsley and basil. Toss well.

Step 3

To serve, spread the slaw on a large platter so it's not mounded and covers most of the plate but leaves a rim to grab on to. Scatter the remaining half of the parsley and basil over the top. Serve immediately.

Ten stars for this unusual salad! Other than finding the Calabrian chiles, this was super easy to prepare. And those chiles - oh my! They are SUPER spicy, but the flavor is unlike anything I've had before. Love them! The herbs, the veggies, the vinaigrette - everything melded perfectly and this is one salad we'll be sure to have again (gotta use up the rest of that jar of peppers!). But, I'll definitely tone down the amount of peppers, as it was a bit too spicy for comfort! Thanks for sharing this keeper of a recipe and for introducing me to a new taste indulgence!
