Substitutions & Notes
Fresh Red Chili - You can use any milder red chili too. Removing the seeds of the chili reduces the heat a lot. You can also skip this and use just chilie flakes instead.Cucumber - English, Persian, Chinese, Japanese, any cucumber with thin skin and less seeds will work.Soy Sauce- Use coconut Aminos or Tamari for a gluten free optionVegan Cucumber Salad - The Salad is vegetarian by itself. Just swap out the honey for maple syrup to make it vegan
For Best results, serve the salad immediately. As the Salad sits, the cucumber looses it's water and becomes a little limp, especially if its been cut too thin. But the taste is nevertheless on point.It can last on the counter without massive deterioration for 1 hour, after which it gets progressively soggy(but not in edible)
