Asian-Inspired Cucumber Salad

This perfect summer salad only uses a few simple ingredients, but packs a ton of flavor (and a fun, little kick thanks to some chili flakes) and makes a great addition to any picnic spread. 

This is one of those salads that just gets better with time.  If possible, it‘s best to prepare the day before you plan to serve it, giving all the flavors more time to blend and meld.
