I love Thai food, so much so that I go to Thailand every year whenever I am back in Asia.
There is just something about the perfect balance of flavors that have us hooked on Thai food, including small dishes such as this Thai cucumber salad that is often served with appetizers like Thai chicken sate, Thai fish cake and shrimp cake.
I always gobble up the small serving of Thai cucumber salad served at restaurants and complain that I don’t have enough. I take matters into my own hands. I make the salad at home, and eat as much as I can, and no one is going to stop me.
The good thing about this recipe is that I don’t have to cook, it’s so easy as I just marinate the cucumber and make the to-die-for salad dressing.
