Here is another recipe that uses Sambal Oelek an Asian chile paste that can usually be found on the Asian foods aisle:
SMASHED CUCUMBER SALAD
Cut one English cucumber in half lengthwise; cut each half crosswise into thirds. Place pieces, cut side down, on a cutting board and smash with a heavy skillet or cooking mallet until slightly flattened and split in places. Chop into one inch pieces. Combine 1-1/2 teaspoons sambal oelek, one teaspoon toasted sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and one grated garlic clove. Toss with cucumber, 1/4 chopped green onions, and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
