    Try this Thai-inspired salad with chicken or fish. The sugar in the dressing balances the heat of the red pepper. From Cooking Light. (Prep time doesn't include 1 hour for cucumber to drain).

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the cucumber slices in a colander; sprinkle with salt. Toss well. Drain 1 hour.
    2. 2
      Place cucumber slices on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 5 minutes, pressing down occasionally. Rinse and pat dry.
    3. 3
      Note: Salting the cucumber removes moisture so they'll be more crisp in the salad.
    4. 4
      Combine vinegar, water, sugar, and pepper in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat; cool. Stir in onion.
    5. 5
      Combine cucumbers and vinegar reduction in a medium bowl; toss well. Sprinkle with peanuts.

      Wow the first bite was sweet and then the heat hit Wow. Made as written and the cucumbers were so cool and crispy which was a wonderful contrast to the sweet and hot dressing . Love the peanuts on top. This is a great side and would also make a great pot luck dish. Thanks so much for the post.

      I am so glad I stumbled upon this recipe before my cucumbers went bad! This recipe is very unique and I will definitely make it again. I did make several changes due to the fact that some of the ingredients weren't on hand- instead of just peanuts, I mixed crunchy peanut butter with a bit of lime juice and soy sauce, and ended up with a creamy thai-esque sauce. Very good!
