Cucumber Salad

If you planted as many cucumbers as I did, you need to find some creative ways to eat them. (Since I don't like pickles).We had this salad last night- it is very simple and very good, and goes well with fish.

1 medium cucumber
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro

1 Tbs. honey
1 Tbs. rice vinegar
2 tsp grated ginger (I just used a little dried ginger).
1/2 tsp. salt

Peel cucumber, slice in half lengthwise and cut out seeds. Make thin slices and place in a salad bowl, along with onions and red bell pepper. Top with dressing and cilantro, toss to coat evenly.
I couldn't really imagine how this would taste before I made it, but there is a nice sweet-spiciness to it, great fresh flavors. I also didn't have any bell peppers but it still turned out fine!
