This is an excellent recipe. The flavor is just perfect. I doubled it and used a serrano chili, since I couldn't find a thai chili. It was a hit with all. Thanks for sharing the recipe, which I will definitely make again. Made for ZWT6.

Wild taste sensation, and just adore the chili peppers, chopped. The lime juice addition perfectly balanced out the vinegar/ginger/brown sugar combo, and these were so good they could of been sent to outer stratosphere. I let my cukes get rid of their extra fluid by putting them in a colander first with a little salt. Made for *ZWT Six* Zee Zesty Zany Cookz May 2010

A very different cucumber salad with a unique combination of flavors and textures. I followed the advice of another reviewer and dried the cucumbers out a bit by lightly salting and allowing to drain in a colander. I could not get a fresh red Thai chili so used half a Serrano chili which gave just the very slightest of heat probably could have used the whole pepper. Thanks for the post.

This is a very different marinated cucumber salad. My DS found the peppers a bit too much to handle, so I'd decrease those. Also, the directions didn't say when to add the chili pepper or sesame oil, so I added them when I thought they worked. Although I prefer the basic vinegar and onion cucumber salad, this one worked well with the asian flavorings. Thanks for sharing!

Yummy salad! I made this as directed other than cutting back on the pepper a little bit. The directions don't say when to add the pepper, so I added it in step 3. Thanks ellie_ for a great refreshing salad. Made for ZWT6 for the Unrulies Under the Influence.

Fantastic! Nice and Hot, we like spicy foods, so this was right up our alley. I didn't know what a thai pepper was, so used a serrano and 2 crushed mexican tepin chilies. Made for newest tag.
