I was glad to be able to take brendaboo's advice and make the salad the morning of my event. It only took a half hour to prepare, made the 3 hour car ride in the cooler, and was a terrific hit at my family reunion. I am now eating it for lunch the Monday after (I made it Sat am) and while the cucumbers are a bit soggy, it is still moist and tastes great. Thanks for a great recipe...even my husband who doesn't like Thai food much loved it!
This recipe was very easy to make, but also extremely disappointing. I made it in advance and refrigerated overnight. It was dry, and tasted terrible. I would not recommend at all and will never try it again.
