Nyonya Spicy Cucumber Salad

    As a Malaysian 'Peranakan' family whose dad can only speak 2 words of Chinese in Hokkien dialect which are "Ho" (Good) and "Chiak" (Eat), we have always loved our food spicy, even with salads! This is one of my family's many, many favorite salad dishes that my mom used to make. It never fails to whet the appetite and it is very easy to do.
