Tastes a lot like the cucumber salad I get at my favorite sushi bar, only a little spicier. A few changes... used roasted red pepper strips instead of fresh and only added about 1/4 cup. Also added 1/4 cup shaved carrot and 1 tsp sesame seeds. And, used bottled minced ginger rather than fresh. I can see how some toasted peanuts would be good on top, too!
