This is a Thai condiment that goes well with Satay. Satay is a Thai shishkabob, chicken or beef that dipped in peanut sauce and BBQ'd

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise and remove seeds.
  2. Slice the cucumbers thinly
  3. Place cucumbers, onions and chillies in a bowl
  4. Combine remaining ingredients (except the peanuts) and drizzle over the salad
  5. Toss well, (at this point you may place the salad in the fridge for an hour or so but I like to finish it and serve at once)
  6. Garnish with the peanuts & serve.

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.
