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.

Notes on Sweet Chili Thai Cucumber Salad

    • This salad is great on it’s own, served as a side with your favorite savory dish.
    • I love this salad on top of tacos with sour cream, super yum!
    • Consider leaving the peel on when making this Sweet Chilli Thai Cucumber Salad. The majoirty of nutrients are in the peel of the cucumber, rich in Vitamin A and contributes to healthy eyes.

This is outstanding! Just for fun, I grilled corn, cut if off the cob and threw it in. Took it to another level. Thank you for this.

Oh wow, such a great idea! Thank you!

Any suggestions as to how far in advance this could be made? I’m wondering the same for your southern potato salad as I’d like to make them both for a lunch party coming up. Thanks for any help!

Hi Janet, I'd make it up to 1 day in advance if serving to guests. Same with the potato salad.

Another winner Tanya, well done! I never would have thought to use sweet chili sauce in a salad dressing but it gives a lovely exotic flavour. Thanks so much for posting, love your recipes!
