Spago Cucumber Salad has a wonderful crisp taste and a slight Asian flavor. You can use it with fish, chicken, or as a side dish by itself. It is greatsto use during anytime of the year. I especially like to use my lemon cucumbers out of my garden during the summer months.
The Asian-style dressing was fast to make and tasted vinegary and sweet at the same time.

* American or English cucumbers may be substituted (this is what I usually do), but cucumbers need to be peeled, cut lengthwise, seeded, and sliced into thin half moons. I like to use my lemon cucumbers out of my garden in this recipe (peeled and sliced whole).
