Thai Cucumber Salad

You may notice that when it comes to world cuisines, I don’t usually share many. In the last few months or so, I have really trying to change that. It started with a new found love of Thai food! This Thai Cucumber Salad is addicting and I make it probably weekly.

I just love this Thai Cucumber Salad. It’s delicious all year round. But, I am partial to enjoying it in the hot, balmy summer months. There’s nothing better than a cucumber to cool you off!

Thai Cucumber Salad is a quick side dish to whip to go with a lovely Thai dinner. This is such an easy recipe to create to go along with quick meals.

It’s light, refreshing and full of flavor without a ton of ingredients.

How to Make a Thai Cucumber Salad:

Thai Cucumber Salad Ingredients

To start, peel and slice your cucumbers long wise. Scoop out of the seeds and then slice the cucumbers. Place the cucumbers in a bowl.

In a small bowl, make your dressing. The Sesame Oil adds so much flavor, even though you just need a little bit. Mix together vinegar, sugar, oil, red pepper flakes and salt.

Pour the dressing over the cucumbers. Garnish with sliced green onions and peanuts.

Of course, if you find yourself without peanuts, you can opt to leave them out.

Serve your Thai Cucumber Salad immediately or I personally like to let it refrigerate for a bit.

I scrolled thru at least 30 comments. Not one of you had even tried it. I did and it was amazing. Why comment on a recipe you haven't tried? I look at comments to see if most people like it, and some changes they thought would help. PLEASE!!!

This sounds great, and I am going to try it. However, your photos clearly do not match your directions. The photos show whole sliced cucumbers without the seeds removed.

You can do it anyway you'd like! Sometimes I slice and seed them and sometimes I don't!
