Asian Cucumber Salad

Ever since Spane and I went to the Thai Barbecue restaurant, we have loved the spicy cucumber salad that comes with their Satay.  I could eat that every day!

I love to try to recreate dishes I have had in restaurants in my home, and have tried a few times to get this one right, but always failed, until I made this one.  This is actually really simple.  I suggest you peel the cucumber because it’s skin can cause indigestion.

The best tool to use for this is a mandolin slicer.  They are available at cooking stores or Amazon.  When I cut mine, I used the 5/16 thickness, basically paper-thin.  Be sure and use the guard, and be careful!
