{Pinned} Cucumber Snack

I have seen this cucumber snack pinned all over Pinterest.
The original pinner  wrote "Cucumber,olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and chili powder on top. So addicted to these!"
It was one of those pins that only leads to a photo, no recipe. Bummer.
I searched around for a recipe and couldn't find any exact measurements so I thought I'd wing it on my own.
 Peel and slice your cucumbers (I used three).
 Juice 1 medium lemon.
 Add olive oil (I added 2 tsp). Mix lemon juice and olive oil together. Pour over cucumbers in a large (enough) container.
 Add seasonings to taste (salt, pepper and chili powder).
Stir together and refrigerate.
The longer they sit, the juicier they get but don't let them sit too long or they get soggy.
They were good but pretty sour. I probably could have used less lemon juice/more olive oil.
Pin It

I like cucumbers. Sometimes they don't like me but the burpless kind are nicer on me.

Pinterest is pretty neat but I don't do it. I did find someone who came to my blog via a 'pinny' who had stolen a Runza picture off my blog. Bummer.

I hope you have time to post a little "X" word for the 'Alpha.'

This is a really cool looking recipe. I want to like cucumbers...but I really like them as a spa treatment more than an eating thing (I obviously meant food need more sleep!)

Maybe this recipe is what I need to get more into them.

Either way, your cucumber cutter makes really gorgeous slices!
