  1. The Thai place I go to serves these. However, they are sliced a lot thinner. Also, they don’t come with peanuts, pepper flakes or onions. Of course, as with any Asian dish, there are hundreds of recipes out there. Looks really good though. I love using rice vinegar.

  2. Ok that’s weird! I just asked Hubby last night to make his delicious Thai cucumber salad! He uses fish sauce instead of sesame oil and lime juice instead of the vinegar with peanut halves–Iove it. Will try your version too, we have cucs like crazy this year.

    • It was an amazing year! Out of 8 plants we made almost 50 quarts of dill pickles, gave some cucumbers away and ate a ton! This was a nice change of taste from my usual recipe and it was relally delicious! Have a great weekend!
