This Sweet Chilli Thai Cucumber Salad is the perfect refreshing salad to go along any meal. Chop, chop, chop the veggies and herbs and let it marinate for a great salad.
Finally, a salad recipe! woo hoo! Although I am sure most readers don’t mind the baked goods, like this Mini Rum Carrot Cake or the comfort food like this Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese. Hehehe. But like everyone else, I’ve made a resolution to get more veggies in my diet. Now don’t get me wrong, we were doing pretty well with getting veggies in our diet but I know my hubby and baby girl were getting a wee bit tired of the same ol’ side salad with dinner every night. That’s where this cucumber salad comes about.
I was in the grocery store perusing the produce aisle because….well, it’s kind of fun looking at vegetables and herbs and sniffing them. Am I the only one that does this? Then I came across the cucumbers and picked some up because they were on sale. Anyone else buy produce just because it’s on sale? I initially planned on slicing these babies up and putting it on some lettuce with a whole lot of ranch dressing. Yummy! But I knew my family would want something a tad bit different.
I recalled seeing a cucumber salad recipe on the side of a Thai sweet chili bottle and decided that’s what needed to go on these cucumbers. I don’t recall Add the red onion, red peppers, cilantro, and lime juice and you have a winner winner.
I sure hope you enjoy this Sweet Chili Thai Cucumber Salad as much as we do. Until the next recipe…
