- Slice the cucumbers thinly
- Place cucumbers, onions and chillies in a bowl
- Combine remaining ingredients (except the peanuts) and drizzle over the salad

This was wonderful! The cucumbers were spicy and crunchy... a perfect accompainament to Grilled Asian Style Flank Steak, Soba Noodles, and Asian Slaw. Next time, I may possibly make these up a couple of hours early to allow the flavors to marinate. Very good stuff!!
This is a very good salad, with beautiful bright colors that looks very elegant on the plate. Easy to prepare, with clear instructions. I liked that the cucumbers stayed nice & crispy. Thanks for sharing this tasty salad.
This got mixed reviews at our house, but since I liked it I went with the higher rating and gave it 4 starts. I found the recipe to have a nice mild flavor that complemented our dinner with Thai Chicken Cakes With Sweet Chilli Sauce, Low G.i. Spicy Thai Vegetable Rice With Cilantro, and a green salad. I ended up putting mine on top of my salad and using it as a dressing. I really enjoyed it. My husband though it was a little too bland. I did only use 1 jalapeno because I was uncertain of the heat. I think it could have used a second and if I make it again I will keep that in mind. Using Zurie's suggestion, I prepared my cucumbers with a potato peeler. While it was a little work, the thin slices were beautiful.
