Spicy Cucumber and Chilli Salad Recipe

The spicy chilli invites a taste sensation and is ultimately a match made in heaven paired with a cool-cucumber and vinegar topping.

The entire meal takes about 5 minutes to prepare, and is washed down best with a refreshing fruit juice, or a sneaky white wine during the later hours of the evening.
