Thai sweet chili sauce
salt to taste
cucumber, thinly sliced
green onion, thinly sliced
Simple, yet tasty! This comes together very quickly...the hardest part is waiting for the cucumber to marinate an hour! I love marinated cukes and this is a nice change from the usual. Next time I think I will use one clove of fresh garlic instead of granulated. The only change I made was to double the green onions. Delicious!
I was bored of my regular cucumber salad so I tried this. It seems like the quantities are way off here. I used twice the amount of cucumbers but between the vinegar and chili sauce the salad was so sharp. It was edible the first time I served it, but after marinating for another day we just couldn't stomach it. I'm not trying this again.
Tried and liked it very much, great recipe.
Wow, Wow & Wow! What a terrific variation for a cucumber salad. I wasn't sure whether or not to use "toasted" sesame oil, so I used half toasted and half regular. The marinade is delicious. Only other change I made was to add more green onion. This recipe is certainly a "keeper". Only regret is I didn't double or triple the batch. I won't make that mistake again. Thank you for sharing this great cucumber variation. (*I tried to review previously which didn't post, so if the first review appears from cyber space, please excuse the duplication)
Great flavor!! I used a mandolin to slice the cucumbers so it was super fast to prepare. I used jarred garlic rather than the granulated garlic. I'm always happy to find Asian dishes without soy. This salad is not spicy in the least to me, especially with the added sugar, but I wouldn't change a thing! Honestly, I didn't think I was a big fan of cucumbers but I will be making this again!
I have been making a similar dish. To offset the sweetness, add balance and crunch, I add thinly sliced radishes at serving time. It adds color too. Radishes are not good if added when marinating cucumber. They become unpleasant in texture.
This recipe is great!! A nice change from a mayo based dressing. Like others you can't stop eating it....addicting! If I have fresh tomatoes I chop them up and add them also.
