Quick & Easy Cucumber Kimchi

Quick & Easy Cucumber Kimchi is crunchy fun of flavor and just a bit spicy (turn up the heat if you dare). This is absolutely one of my favorite ways to enjoy Cucumbers. This is a great main entree or side salad. It is perfect for a light lunch with a small bowl of fresh rice. I love to sit and chat while snacking over a shared salad and this one adds some heat to the conversation.
