A fabulous summer meal, marinade the meat and make the dressing the night before then throw dinner together FAST. Excellent for casual dinner parties and dieters. I've had this mouth-watering salad at a couple of different Thai restaurants, I was unable to find a recipe so I combined several to make my own. This salad is very spicy yet the bursts of freshness from the lime and mint make it a celebration for the taste buds. It's extremely addictive and very healthy, no oil!
This makes a nice accompaniment to a curry or stir fry. It can be very spicy depending on the type of chili sauce and pepper/chili used, so taste often if you are sensitive to hot foods. I like to use the seedless cukes that are about 5-6" long, but any cuke will work (preferably not waxed). The ingredient database did not have the type of cuke I use, so get about 15" of thin cucumber.
Time includes 45 minutes marinating.
