1 jalapeño, seeded and finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cucumbers, very finely sliced
4 tablespoons minced cilantro, to taste
- Dice the jalapeño and garlic and add to a medium bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper. use a whisk to incorporate the 3 tablespoons olive oil. Set aside.
- Finely slice the cucumbers. use a mandolin if you have it, but a very sharp knife will do the trick. Add the cucumbers to the dressing and stir together.
- Finely mince the cilantro and add it to the bowl. Stir to combine. you can either let it sit int the fridge to marinate for a couple hours or serve immediately. Be sure to allow it to come to room temperature before serving to allow the oil to become liquid again.
