Chili and Lime Cucumbers

Chili and Lime Cucumbers Recipe Chili and Lime Cucumbers Recipe

This is an extremely simple dish to make, and is quite perfect as a party appetizer or introduction to brunch. Serve with champagne or a cold margarita if it isn't too early. We like to make this when the garden is going crazy, or when our neighbors' gardens are going crazy. Seriously, we had to stop growing cucumbers because everyone else in the neighborhood is growing them, and everyone wants to give them away. Why does the world need so many cucumbers? It's hard to complain since they are so delicious. This is a great mini appetizer or snack with a spicy Mexican flair, depending on your choice of chili powder. Enjoy!
