Thai Style Cucumber Salad


  • Seedless English Cucumbers, thinly sliced ribbons or finely diced , 2-3 medium size (if using regular cucumbers, do discard the seeds) 
  • Onion, thinly sliced into half moons or finely diced,1/2 medium
  • Hot water, 3 tbsp
  • Rice Wine Vinegar, 1 tbsp ( if you don’t have rice wine vinegar, regular white vinegar would do)
  • Sugar, 1/2 tbsp ( I use brown sugar)
  • Fresh Red Chilies, finely chopped, ½ tbsp
  • Salt, ¼ tsp 
  • Fresh coriander leaves, a handful, optional


Mix hot water, vinegar, sugar, chili and salt in a small bowl. Let the sugar dissolve completely and the mix cool down.

In a serving bowl arrange the cucumber and onions. Pour the vinegar mixture over the salad. Refrigerate for about an hour before serving.

Works very well with Thai Fish cakes (which are what we are having tonight) or Red Thai curry and steamed rice or even regular sandwiches/burgers.


I would not suggest storing for too long as the cucumbers completely lose their crunch.
