This Thai classic is served as a condiment to Satay (skewered food dipped in peanut sauce). I like to use this salad with verde chicken corn flautas.


  • 2 cucumbers, peeled
  • 2 to 3 green onions, whites and greens, sliced thinly
  • 1 to 2 green chilies, seeded and minced
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp lite soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped salted or unsalted dry-roasted peanuts, for garnish


1. Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and slice the cucumber thinly.

2. Place the cucumbers, onion, and chilies in a bowl.

3. In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients except peanuts. Whisk well.

4. Drizzle dressing over salad. Toss well.

5. Garnish with peanuts and serve right away.
