Instead of serving cucumbers cold, blogger Sasha Martin looks to China for this warm, crisp, tangy stir-fry of cucumbers and mushrooms spiced with ginger, garlic and jalapeño. Slideshow: More Cucumber Recipes

How to Make It


In a large nonstick skillet, heat the sesame oil. Add the garlic and ginger and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and jalapeño and cook, stirring, until the mushrooms start to soften, about 
2 minutes. Stir in the vinegar, sugar, cucumber slices and 
2 tablespoons of water and stir 
to coat in the sauce. Cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the cucumbers are tender and the sauce is thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and season with salt. Serve warm.
