Asian-Style Sweet & Spicy Cucumbers
Ingredients:
1 large cucumber
salt
1-2 red chili peppers
rice wine vinegar / mirin 
white sugar
Directions:
Cut the cucumber into small-ish pieces. Spears, slices, anything. Sprinkle salt over the cucumbers and toss to combine. This will draw out some of the water from the cucumber. Let it rest for about 20 minutes, then drain.
Pour in enough rice wine vinegar (or mirin, in Japanese) to cover the cucumber. Add in about 3-4 tbsp of sugar. Chop up the chili peppers and toss them in. 
Mix ingredients together, cover with plastic wrap, and let it marinate in the fridge for at least an hour. I prefer letting it marinate overnight, as the cucumbers will be much more flavorful (albeit a little less crispy) the next day.
