Thai Cucumber Salad

I made this recipe over the weekend and accidentally used habanero peppers and it was WONDERFUL!! Even better the 2nd day :) Ingredients 3 large cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch slices 1 tablespoon salt 1/2 cup white sugar 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped 1/4 cup chopped cilantro 1/2 cup chopped peanuts Directions Toss the cucumbers with the salt in a colander, and leave in the sink to drain for 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water, then drain and pat dry with paper towels. Whisk together the sugar and vinegar in a mixing bowl until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cucumbers, jalapeno peppers, and cilantro; toss to combine. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top before serving.
