  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Toss the cucumbers, dried shrimp, beans, and tomatoes together in a bowl.
  2. Stir the Thai chilies, palm sugar, fish sauce, and lime juice together in a small bowl; pour over the cucumber mixture. Toss to combine. Adjust seasoning to your taste. Sprinkle chopped peanuts over the mixture to serve.


  • Editor's Note:
  • Look for packets of tiny dried shrimp in Asian markets or online. Store leftover shrimp tightly wrapped in the refrigerator or freezer.
