This recipe gets its unique name from the combination of cool crisp vegetables and the spicy jalapeno and dressing. Folks I serve it to agree this is the best cucumber salad that they've ever tasted.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium tomatoes, cut into eighths
  • 1 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 1 small jalapeno, minced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons mustard seed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 7 drops hot pepper sauce, optional
  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeno and onion; set aside. Combine the next seven ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Pour over vegetables. Let stand until mixture comes to room temperature. Stir in cucumbers. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Drain before serving.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
