Spicy Thai Cucumber Salad

Spicy Thai Cucumber Salad created by MinatheBrat

This stuff is addicting! I love eating it along side my rice as it has a real kick. This dish is -in my oppionion- along the lines of a kimchee- a sort of fresh, spicy, pickley, salady sort of thing. I've given some play with the garlic and the chile paste amounts so that you can make it milder.

ingredients

directions

  • Peel the cucumber and slice paper thin.
  • Slice the onion paper thin.
  • Make the dressing with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Toss the veggies with the dressing.
  • Set in the fridge to marinate.
  • I find that this salad improves with age as the cucumbers and onion soak up the flavors from the dressing, however if you slice your veggies thin enough, it's good enough to eat right away.

    Good recipe, very easy and good results. I think we have made, eaten every manor of this salad. Advice to you, use Thai fish sauce far less salty than other countries. Don't use the fish sauce sold in small bottles in supermarkets. I use Squid brand. Remember sugar cancels salty. Use the left over brine and add sliced peppers, Daikon radish, red onion slices allow to marinade overnight.

    I have to agree with BerrySweet in that the fish sauce was a bit over powering. I used the full four tablespoons as I do enjoy fish sauce, but next time I make this I will cut back on the fish sauce a little. Otherwise very tasty!

    Would be better if the fish sauce was reduced by a lot. We DO indeed like fish sauce and use it quite often in cooking, but we cut back to 3 Tablespoons and it was still a too potent, but this is just our opinion. Otherwise, very flavorful & spicy!

    Loved this for a change of pace. I'm a real wuss so I decreased the amount of chile paste by quite a bit, but found that the salad was not too hot to enjoy.
