Spicy Cucumber Salad

The cayenne pepper in this dish adds a spicy kick to the flavor. I peeled the cucumbers, but you can leave the peeling on if you prefer.

Spicy Cucumber Salad
1 tablespoon ranch dressing
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 cup onion, minced
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
2 cucumbers, peeled and diced
Combine dressing, vinegar, oils, soy sauce, onion and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Mix well and add cucumbers. Toss to coat. Chill 1 hour before serving.
