Thai Cucumber Salad
After picking over 40 large cucumbers from our garden in just two days I decided to find a new recipe for cucumbers. So I searched and found this wonderful Thai Cucumber Salad. I loved all of the ingredients that were in it and have never tasted cucumbers like this before….absolutely delicious!
Ingredients – optional is crushed peanuts
In a small bowl combine the vinegar, sugar, red pepper flakes,
sesame oil and salt. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and set aside.
Wash and peel the cucumbers. Slice the cucumbers
in half lengthwise then slice into thick slices.
Add the green onions and peanuts (optional).
Pour the vinegar mixture over the top and stir to combine.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Stir before serving.

I love sesame oil and rice vinegar! Super easy and great new taste. Thank you Chef!
Nice – your presentations are so inviting!
Aw thank you so much! You’re inspirational blog is so uplifting!
Delicious dressing, can replace vinegar with lemon juice
Great idea and totally different taste! Thank you for the tip!
This sounds so good!!
It was and what a nice change from how I usually fix them! Thank you!
I’ll have to try that dish soon, as I have several cucumbers on my counter now.
It was a nice change!
Wow…wonderful salad and that’s awesome you have a kitchen garden.
Thank you! Yes we are blessed to be able to grow produce.
It was! Thanks!
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.
Isn’t rice vinegar the best! I was so thrilled to find this recipe! Thanks Lynn!
My husband picked another 21 today! This is crazy he has been picking over 20 every other day! They don’t fit in the refrigerator anymore. I have been giving them away. I think it’s time to make pickles.
Oh my goodness that’s amazing and crazy. Yes, yes make some pickles!
I love cucumbers…it looks just yummy!
Thank you Valerie it was very good! Give it a try.
Oh my – that is early for so many cucumbers – we don’t usually have them til mid-to-late August and probably later this year as people sowed seeds later.
We have picked over 70 cucumbers! They are in 2 raised beds that are 4’ by 4’ each. It is crazy how many these plants are producing!! We are even getting tomatoes. I have never seen produce like this this early.
That’s amazing – I would think everything was behind with this topsy-turvy weather we’ve had so far in 2018.
Oh!! I ate this before! It was sweet and spicy.
Yes it is very good!!!
Your salad looks so very refreshing.
Thank you Jack it definitely was very refreshing! I even ate it the next day and it was still crunchy with even more flavor!
Refreshing salad and love the thai flavours.
I did too! It was my first time eating cucumber salad this way and it was amazing!
Sounds just up my street and will try this as now we too have cucumber long in greenhouses.Last month we had the mound version called ridge cucumber but better from greenhouse for this recipe I think. Thank you again
You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
super fresh !!
Right from the garden! Thanks!
I did too it was so good! Thanks!
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.
That’s funny! Yes it is an excellent year for cucumbers! This salad was so good and my first time trying it…not my last!
Lovely salad, looks so tempting.
Sounds yummy. I should have several to pick shortly.
Thanks for the follow. This sounds great and I have many cukes.
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!
We had an odd weather year, hopefully odd. Very hot early and wet followed by the same. The only successes were tomatoes and okra. I will pickle okra. Thanks.
This sounds like the flavor would be really delicious.
It was such a nice change of taste! I will definitely be making it again. Thank you Miss Hammie!
If you’re looking for a dish to go with this salad, Thai Red Curry would be perfect!
I will be sure to check it out! Thank you!
