Simple and refreshing, just what you need on a hot summer day! The peanuts add a nice crunch, and the spice is nice!
Combine cucumbers, garlic, green onions, cilantro and mint in a large bowl.
Add rice vinegar, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper; toss gently to combine.
Chill and allow to marinate for at least one hour. Taste and adjust seasonings. Top with chopped peanuts before serving.
If using slicing cucumbers, partially peel if skin is thick, cut in half lengthwise, seed and then slice. Otherwise, English or Persian cucumbers work nicely.
