Cooling off

Ugh.  It's hot and and I swear it must be more than 100% humidity.  We're practically under water here in MN.  On days like this I need simple food that takes about zero effort and zero cooking.  Here's one of my favorite go-to salads.  It works good in a lunchbox, too!

Spicy Cucumber Peanut Salad

1 locally grown cucumber, diced
1 handful of roasted, salted peanuts
1 Tbsp. minced green onion
1 pinch red pepper flakes
~1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
~1 tsp. umeboshi plum vinegar

Combine everything in a bowl.  Find a cool place to sit and eat.

I love cucumber and vinegar in the summer. Yours looks like a nice twist over the ordinary.
