This is a great, light recipe. I think the angel hair is the perfect pasta for this, since it's also very thin and light. Some tips or alterations I made: I added more olive oil than the recipe called for (it helps flavor the pasta) and more olives. I personally don't like raw onion, so I used onion powder (liberally) instead. I was very generous with the salt (kosher) and pepper, and added garlic powder as well. I can see how this might be bland if you aren't very liberal with the spices, and I think even if I had used onion, I'd still add the onion powder. The whole thing was VERY flavorful and had a nice blend of flavors and textures. I'd definitely make this again, and add it to my "staple summer foods." One thing I would warn against is eating this left over. I guess the salt sweated the water out of the cucumber, and leftover this was so watery and bland it was almost inedible. Definitely eat this right after making it.

This recipe sounds very tasty, but if you boil angel hair pasta for 10 minutes, I promise you it ain't gonna be al dente! It will be way overcooked!

This recipe is ok. I made it again and added lemon-pepper tuna which made a huge difference. It added a lot to the flavor.
