Thai Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by VictoriaL

This is a spicy, refreshing salad that's perfect served on a hot summer evening with garden-fresh veggies. It's easiest to use a mandoline to slice the veggies, but a sharp knife and patience will do quite well, also!

This was good, but I thought it would be over the top with a little Thai basil or something thrown in there :) Very nice and fresh tasting though, love the pop from the lime zest!
