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
- 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)
- When thickened, remove from heat and let cool completely and remove ginger slices.
- In a mixing bowl, combine jalapeno, lime juice, cucumbers , cilantro, salt, and cumin
- Once the sauce has cooled completely pour over cucumbers and toss gently.
