Thai Cucumber Salad combines simple ingredients like cucumbers and green onions in a simple vinegar dressing for the perfect side dish or snack!
Need to bring an enticing appetizer to your party, but you're all out of time to bake anything? Want a tasty snack that you won't feel too full after eating the entire plate? What if you really have a craving for takeout food, but want to be friendlier on your wallet while still getting that exotic flavor? Homemade Thai cucumber salad will help with all of these situations.
One of my favorite aspects of this dish has to be the simplicity of it. Most of the time, I am able to find some sesame seeds, peanuts, and vinegar in my cabinets waiting to be used. And almost every shopping trip, we end up with cucumbers and Josie's green onions just because they can be so versatile. As long as you have some cucumbers and green onions, you can make this salad.
Besides for being an extremely clean and easy dish, Thai cucumber salad is also extremely delicious. After I took my pictures for this dish, I was planning on taking a couple of bites and putting it away for lunch the next day. To be honest, once I started having some bites, the only thing that stopped me from having more was my husband taking the plate for himself!
