Spicy Cucumber Salad

I have made this a couple of times over the last few weeks and we gobble it up every time. It's so simple to make and such a great side dish! It would even be a good base to add extra vegetables to, such as tomato and onion. Or eat over a bed a lettuce. I imagine it would taste even better the next day when the flavors a really mixed, but we never have leftovers.
Spicy Cucumber Salad
1-2 Cucumbers ( I use English cucumbers because they are seedless)
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 jalapeno chopped (seeds removed)
3Tbsp lime juice (fresh is best)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp of salt
pinch of pepper
3 Tbsp olive oil
Thinly slice cucumbers, add remaining ingredients to a bowl and stir. To lower the heat, use less jalapeno and red pepper flakes.
