Simple, yet tasty! This comes together very quickly...the hardest part is waiting for the cucumber to marinate an hour! I love marinated cukes and this is a nice change from the usual. Next time I think I will use one clove of fresh garlic instead of granulated. The only change I made was to double the green onions. Delicious! Read More

7 21 17... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/228412/cucumber-salad-with-thai-sweet-chili-vinaigrette/... I liked this but thought I'd like it more. I like spicy food & this is spicy! Spicy is the main flavor though. Easy enough to add more sugar but as is it's spicy with a hint of cucumber. Read More

Wow, Wow & Wow! What a terrific variation for a cucumber salad. I wasn't sure whether or not to use "toasted" sesame oil, so I used half toasted and half regular. The marinade is delicious. Only other change I made was to add more green onion. This recipe is certainly a "keeper". Only regret is I didn't double or triple the batch. I won't make that mistake again. Thank you for sharing this great cucumber variation. (*I tried to review previously which didn't post, so if the first review appears from cyber space, please excuse the duplication) Read More

I have been making a similar dish. To offset the sweetness add balance and crunch I add thinly sliced radishes at serving time. It adds color too. Radishes are not good if added when marinating cucumber. They become unpleasant in texture. Read More

These are great! Worst part was slicing my finger on the mandolin....ouch! I'll be more careful next time-because there WILL be a next time. Only I know I need to at least double it because it doesn't make very much-though I don't think I'd make enough for leftovers because the flavor is pretty strong and it's easy enough to just make it up for dinner (I ate the whole thing myself and was glad I didn't have to share it!) I also think some shredded daikon could be good in this. I had a huge cucumber (seedless) and there was more than enough vinaigrette. My sweet chili sauce had garlic in it so I left the extra garlic out. Everything else was the same and I found the amounts perfect although I am a lover of sesame oil. Sprinkled some sesame seeds on the top. Great Asian side dish! Thanks! Read More

Great flavor!! I used a mandolin to slice the cucumbers so it was super fast to prepare. I used jarred garlic rather than the granulated garlic. I'm always happy to find Asian dishes without soy. This salad is not spicy in the least to me especially with the added sugar but I wouldn't change a thing! Honestly I didn't think I was a big fan of cucumbers but I will be making this again!

Really good cucumber salad that deserves 5 stars as it is written. We like a little kick sometimes so I added a teaspoon of spicy Asian chili sauce and we loved it both ways. Read More
