Excellent recipe! My Thai friend even loved it, although my son ate most of it. I have a boat load of garden cucumbers right now and this salad goes fast! The only minor change I made was that I used Thai peppers because I had them on hand.

Great cucumber dish. I made this to go along with our pad thai the other night and it complimented it perfectly. The cool crunchy cukes went great with the warm noodles. I love it! Thank you so much for introducing us to a new cuke recipe, we loved it, especially the combo of the jalapeno with the cilantro (never would of thought to add to cucumbers)

This was soooo good! I used the little japanese cucumbers that don't have seeds. So crunchy and tasty!
