Sweet and Sour Cucumber Relish

The Chef assures this is awesome over seared tuna or grilled salmon. While I usually shy away from cucumbers in general, I think the pickleyness (new word. check it.) of this could win me over like Caroline’s Cucumber Dip did. Try it on for size.

1/2 red onion, sliced thin
1 tablespoon of ginger, slice in half
1 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup of sugar
1/2 jalapeno, minced
1 lime, juice only
1 1/2 cucumber, peeled, sliced, and deseeded
1/8 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon cumin

  1. In a medium size sauce pot combine red onion, ginger, vinegar, and sugar.  Cook over medium heat until it becomes slightly thick (about 20 minutes)
  2. When thickened, remove from heat and let cool completely and remove ginger slices.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine jalapeno, lime juice, cucumbers , cilantro, salt, and cumin
  4. Once  the sauce has cooled completely pour over cucumbers and toss gently.
