You can use English Cucumbers, which have smaller seeds, but tend to be a little more expensive. Or you can use regular cucumbers for this salad. If you’re super fancy, you might have a ton of cucumbers coming out of your garden, which make this salad perfect for you!

I didn’t grow any cucumbers this year. In fact, I didn’t grow anything, but a few volunteer plants decided to pop up in my garden bed all on their own.

At first I thought they were zucchini plants, since I had a few very large ones last summer. We soon realized that they were pumpkin plants. I was pretty excited seeing as I’ve tried to grow pumpkins for a few years now with no success. I was hopeful that these volunteer plants would be fruitful.

Guess what?!

We grew a pumpkin! A real, live pumpkin! It’s a little early in the season still, so we’re hoping we get a few more in time for fall.

In the meanwhile, I’ll be happily eating this Crunchy Thai Cucumber Salad all the days of the summer.

You’ll love the blend of flavors in the simple sauce, and the crunchy peanuts on top give it just the right amount of nutty balance.
