Marinated Cukes w/ Asian Flavor

This is so simple, it barely qualifies as a recipe.
I just want to make sure y'all have a nice side ready to go for the Perfumed Fish I'm gonna lay on you tomorrow.

Marinated Cukes with Asian Flavor

Take 2 or 3 cukes, halve them lengthwise, and tongue 'em out good with a spoon to remove the seeds. If you're feeling decorative, you might take a vegetable peeler and give the rinds some alternating stripes. Toss in a bowl. Oh man, did I have the perfect bowl just when, wouldn't you know it, the camera battery revealed itself to be as dead as the dodo?

1 & 1/2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
a pinch of salt
a pinch of sugar
a pinch of chili pepper flakes
and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil

Mix it up good and that's it!

Dag, man, if you ever needed a justification for a little cuke patch out back, this is it.
