Crunchy Thai Cucumber Salad is filled with crisp cucumbers in a slightly sweet and spicy dressings, then topped with crunchy peanuts.
Crunchy Thai Cucumber Salad has become one of my new favorite salads during the summer months because it’s so simple to make.
This cool and refreshing salad only takes a few minutes to toss together and it pairs perfectly with grilled chicken, fish or these Thai Beef Skewers!
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.
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.
Are you growing anything in your garden this year?

Does anyone have a recipe for Thai chili sauce??
The Thai Sweet Chili sauce is a commercial made condiment. Found in the meat department of our local Zupan;s market. Very good and useful for all sorts of things. I’ve never used it on cucumbers before. Excellent recipe and very easy when the kitchen is too hot to cook in. I especially liked the fact the on the “Print Recipe” page, it can show how to make a reduced amount. Original page recipe made for four servings; for just two of us, I just clicked on the +- and it automatically showed the changed amounts. I wish all online recipes had this feature. I sometimes try to reduce the amounts, and get into trouble. I only had walnuts on hand and they worked fine, but either the peanuts or, better, pistachios, might be even better.
