Thai Cucumber Salad

We've finally come to the last recipe from our Thai Inspired Dinner Party. You can visit HERE to see all the recipes together. This Thai cucumber salad is a refreshing side to serve with the other dishes and is super easy to whip up ahead of time and have chilling in the fridge. A few simple ingredients thrown together with an even simpler dressing and *voila* ready to go!
We shared our original Cucumber Salad HERE - that recipe is more of a European-type cucumber salad. Check them both out, see which one you like better! 

Thai Cucumber Salad

1 large cucumber, cut into pieces
generous sprinkle salt
1/4 small red onion, sliced
2 Tbsp roasted peanuts, chopped

2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp water
4 Tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar 

Add the salt to the cucumber and set in fridge for 15 minutes. 
While it is chilling, whip up the dressing by combining all the dressing ingredients in a small saucepan. Let simmer until dressing is reduced and slightly thickened. Let cool. 
Drain any of the salt water off the cucumbers completely. Toss the cucumber and onion, and then mix in the dressing. 
Top with chopped peanuts. Serve immediately. 

A fabulous way to use up all those cucumbers in the garden right now!
