"This salad is a refreshing side to spicy Thai food. I prefer it without hot peppers or peanuts since its major purpose for me is refreshment. It's especially quick to make if you can slice the cucumbers and onions in a food processor."

cucumber, thinly sliced
red onion, thinly sliced
Delicious but the picture shows tomatoes, which I included. Either way I am sure it's a great refresher.
Tasty, cool, and refreshing for summer!
I've made this recipe but I also add fresh dill weed to the mix.
This recipe is amazing, just amazing! Simple, easy, quick, yet beautiful and delicious. If you can refrigerate longer than an hour it's better. Any changes are strictly preference. Personally, I added a little less sugar and included carrots with the cucumbers and red onions. I doubled the recipe, plus added about 4 medium carrots, and tripled the vinegar mixture. There was 10 of us and I had only a small amount left; seriously, it was the easiest thing I made for my dinner party and the most popular!
This was a nice, easy and refreshing salad. I thought it was too sweet for my taste, so I will reduce the sugar next time. Also next time, I will experiment with adding herbs. I think dill will go with this quite well. A keeper!
First batch I too thought it was a little sweet. I made a second batch and followed recipe exactly but added a pinch of cayenne pepper. This took away some of the sweetness and gave it a little kick (not too much tho)
Very good and simple recipe. I used a little less sugar than called for, but that's just personal preference for less sweet dressing. Family loved it!
This tasted just like the salad served in my favorite Thai restaurant! I loved it! I added some thinly sliced red bell pepper to mine and it made it not only colorful, but added some depth of flavor too.
