Description

This refreshing Thai cucumber salad features red pepper, cashews and cilantro, covered in a vinaigrette made with Thai red curry paste.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cucumbers
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 green onions
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro, loosely packed
  • 1 ½ tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 2 teaspoons Thai red curry paste
  • ¼ to cup cashew halves

Instructions

  1. Peel the cucumbers in alternating strips. Cut them in half and scrape out the seeds with a spoon, then cut each half into crescent shapes. Season with ¼ teaspoon kosher salt and drain the slices in a colander while preparing the remainder of the salad. Then pat the slices dry with a paper towel.
  2. Dice the red pepper. Thinly slice the green onions. Roughly chop the cilantro.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the white wine vinegar. peanut oil, Thai red curry paste, and a few pinches of kosher salt. Place the vegetables in a bowl and pour over the dressing. Garnish with cashew halves. (Note: The salad is best served fresh. If prepared in advance, keep the cucumbers, cashews and dressing separate from other vegetables, then mix them together at the time of serving.)
