Thai Cucumber Salad

Thai cucumber salad

This tasty cucumber salad is so simple to put together, but its a wonderful accompaniment to any spicy, Asian dishes that you like to make at home. It works perfectly with my Thai Red Curry Chicken.

This is a light, nutritious recipe that you could even eat by itself as a lunch time snack. To make it a little more filling you might consider sprinkling some nuts on top.

One of the most appealing things about this dish is that it only takes a few minutes to make. Anything that means less time in the kitchen has to be a welcome bonus!

The recipe calls for a little vinegar, but we can use Apple Cider Vinegar instead of the regular white vinegar that’s on the foods to avoid list. And the sweetness comes from a small amount of stevia rather than added sugar. You can make and refrigerate this salad a couple of hours before your meal, and it will still taste fresh and delicious.

    Excellent. Precisely what commercial restaurants should be serving to promote health and more healthy immune strengthening food sources, rather than the fast cold food outlets that give out toys to youngsters in order to attract them to high caloric fat laden unhealthy diets for the benefits of the corporate and shareholders bottom line. Capitalism at its best. Want to live a long life, eat healthy and wisely.
