Thai Fresh Cucumber Salad (Taeng Kwa Brio Wan) Recipe

* Note: The book says to peel the cucumbers only if they are waxed and even then leave on a few strips. I say to remove all the peel if it's been waxed. Yuck.

Step 1

In a bowl, generously salt the sliced cucumbers. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Combine the other ingredients.

Step 3

Squeeze out as much of the cucumber juice as you can, by wringing a handful at a time in a double layer of cheesecloth or a dish towel. Twist until you can extract no more juice.

Step 4

Combine the squeezed cucumbers and the sauce in a serving bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
