Thai Cucumber Salad

Back with our salad experiments, right before we jump into the #weekendbinges (Hello weekend!). This time it is with our #thaicucumber salad – a regular favourite in the house especially with thai meals or stand alone. Think of a flavor and you get it there – crunchy, garlicky, spicy, sweet! This salad in particular is a great appetizer.

Ingredients:

  • 2 sliced Japanese cucumber
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic – finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped spring onion greens
  • 2 tbsp coarsely crushed roasted peanuts
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander / parsley

Dressing:

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp warm honey / sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chili oil
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (adjust as needed)

Procedure:

  • Chill the sliced cucumber for 1 hr in the fridge before serving the salad
  • Prepare the dressing by mixing garlic, olive oil, vinegar, honey, salt, chili oil, chili flakes
  • In a plate, place all the cucumber. Sprinkle greens of spring onion on top followed by dressing
  • Add peanuts, parsley and sesame seeds on top
  • Toss well and serve chilled!
