Thai Cucumber Salad

This is one of my all time favorite Thai Salads.  It is light, fresh, and full of flavor.  I absolutely love to eat this salad over steamed Jasmine rice or as a nice side dish to grilled meat. 

You can adjust the amount of heat in the salad by reducing the amount of pepper you use.  I like it super spicy!!

Only the freshest ingredients will do


1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce (Nam Pla)
1 1/2 tbsp white sugar
1-2 thinly sliced Thai red pepper (adjust to your preference)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 large cucumbers, thinly sliced
3/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
3 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
Salt and pepper

  1. Whisk first 5 ingredients in small bowl
  2. Place cucumbers, onion, and mint in large bowl
  3. Add dressing to coat
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste
