chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 teaspoons
red pepper flakes
toasted Asian sesame oil
minced fresh ginger root
cucumber, thinly sliced
The ginger in this recipe makes it irresistible. I know it says to serve 10 minutes after it is prepared. This seems to be important. I prepared it about 1 1/2 hours before I served it. In that time the water had drained from the cucumbers and there was too much sauce, and the sauce was too watery. It was better when I tasted it right after I had prepared it. Excellent mix of flavors.
The sauce was overpowering and a bit on the tart side. It could have benefited from at least twice the brown sugar and perhaps a little (TBS or two) of water. As a side note: salting the cucumbers does work to get them to release the juices but depending on how much you put on, it can leave a lingering salty taste. Great for normal cucumbers but is offputting when combined with this sauce. I think it would be better to leave the juices and eat the dish quickly. I had some cold cooked chicken which I added. of it.
Did not have tamarind juice so googled substitute which is 1/4 cup OJ + 2 tbs of lime juice. I like my Thai cucumber salad a little sweeter, so added 1 packet of Splenda. with added sweetner rate 5 stars
This was fabulous. I accidentally put one and a half tablespoons of brown sugar, so then I just basically doubled/tripled the other ingredients to make up for it. I also ate this immediately, but next time I will salt the cucumbers for an hour or so before mixing with the sauce, so I can refrigerate any leftovers without the cucumbers getting soggy.
This was good. I omitted the red pepper flakes and added two finely diced Thai chillies because I had them on hand. Lots of HEAT! But very good.
Excellent! This reminds me of a cucumber salad I used to order at a sushi joint near my old house, only with a lot more zing to it!
Delicious and authentic. I served it for a group of 8 tonight and it was the first dish to finish. The subtle fish sauce adds so much dimension to the marinade. I will make again.
This recipe and one of my own for this salad is fantastic. This can go with any kind of dish!
