"The first time I made this salad I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so I made 2 substitutions that came out VERY GOOD. Instead of the fresh pepper I used dry chili de arbol (pretty spicy)and I used mint instead of cilantro. The thinner you sliced the cucumber, the better. Enjoy!"

We love this salad, all the flavors blend well together, I used red onion instead of the shallots, this needs a few hours of chilling time to blend flavors, I'll be making this one again! Made for the Billboard Tag game, thanks MsPia!
