My mother in law has been making jars and jars of pickle relish and I've made this Creamy Cucumber Salad at least once a week. This Thai Cucumber Salad was a nice change and so delicious alongside grilled burgers and roast beef sandwiches.
Simple side dishes that don't requiring cooking are my favorite for hot weather. I will be making this Thai Cucumber Salad on repeat all summer long.
Tips for Making Thai Cucumber Salad:
You might not have thought about garnishing a cucumber salad with peanuts but the flavors totally work and the extra crunch is delicious. Definitely add the peanuts just before serving or as you plate the salad, leaving them as an option.
Most Thai recipes are a bit on the spicy side for me. You can add red pepper flakes if you are a fan of spicy cucumbers.
How Long Will Thai Cucumber Salad Keep?
Thai Cucumber Salad will keep up to 4-5 days. Ours didn't make it passed day 2, it was a big hit and I am making it again today.
