Thai Cucumber Salad

Remember that Asian restaurant that I mentioned in my homemade ginger ale post? Well, we also had Thai cucumber salad that day too. It wasn’t my first time eating this salad, but it was the first time I remembered just how much I loved it!
So, of course, I had to come home and recreate it. What motivated me to try it at home, was the fact that my kids gobbled it up when we were out to eat. They didn’t mind the spice. I must admit for this particular recipe I did add a little too much red pepper. But since it was only me eating this time, it wasn’t an issue. When I make it for the kids I add very little red pepper.
This recipe is a great side dish. Thai cucumber salad is very simple yet delicious. It goes well with any chicken dish, or eat it alone! Either way, you will be delighted and refreshed by this easy recipe.
If you bring this to a gathering your guest will be so happy! It’s perfect for a barbeque because the cucumbers stay crisp and fresh tasting. It is better to chill it before eating because it adds to the refreshing flavor.
I was also happy to try this recipe because it is easy and I got to try my new spiralizer! It made the cucumbers so thin and yummy! Okay on to the recipe.
