Cookbook Profile

Fire and Ice


2 large cucumbers, peeled, quartered
   lengthwise and seeded
2—3 small serrano chiles, seeded and diced
2 green onions
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
White pepper


Roughly dice the cucumbers, not too small, about 1/2" square. Place them in a colander or strainer in the sink and lightly salt. Let drain for at least 20 minutes. This removes the excess water from the cucumbers.

While the cucumbers are draining, seed and dice the serrano chiles and mince the green onions, including the green part. Chop the mint just before mixing.

Pat the cucumbers dry with a kitchen or paper towel. Mix with the chopped ingredients and add white pepper to taste. Chill 5 minutes for the flavors to blend.
