Thai Cucumber Salad

This Thai cucumber salad is a light and refreshing recipe that can be a great lunch or even a side dish.

Luckily for me, the Chief Taster does not like cucumbers so I had this healthly recipe all to myself!  The cucumber salad is sweet, tangy and refreshing with a small chilli kick.  It made a devine light lunch but would also be great as a side dish.

I did try to use my spiralizer on the cucumbers as I had a vision of a plate full of cucumber noodles.  Sadly, this did not work for me so I ended up grating them.   Perhaps it was the type of cucumbers that I used as they were smaller than the long English ones.

You may not want to use all of the salad dressing as the cucumber has a high water content and you will end up with a bowl swimming in dressing.  You could store the dressing in a jar and keep in the fridge for a couple of days if there is anything left over.  Serve the salad immediately once made as it needs to be fresh and will not sit well.
