2 large cucumbers 
1 red onion, finely chopped 
1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped 
1 cup unsalted, roasted or raw, shelled peanuts 

3 Tbs lemon juice 
1 Tbs tamari or soy sauce 
1 Tbs sugar, honey or agave syrup 
1/2 cup dried fruit such as raspberries, raisins, cranberries
(optional, and not in original recipe)

Slice the cucumbers in half lengthwise and scoop out and discard the seeds
Cut the cucumber halves into 1/4" half-moon slices
Combine cucumber slices, red onion, and jalapeno pepper in a bowl
Mix all dressing ingredients in a small bowl
Pour dressing over cucumber slices, onions and peppers and mix well
Chill salad for 20-30 minutes 
Add peanuts just before serving to prevent them from getting soggy
Unless honey is used, this recipe is vegan. 

I have spiffed up this salad by adding dried cranberries, raisins, and/or raspberries.
