Thai Cucumber Salad – Recipe

Thai Cucumber Salad


  • 2 pounds cucumbers about 3, peeled, halved lengthwise, and sliced 1/4" thick
  • 1/2 red onion sliced very thin
  • 1 T salt
  • 2/3 C water
  • 1/2 C rice vinegar
  • 2 1/2 T sugar
  • 2 small jalapeno chiles seeded and minced (or more, to taste)


  • Toss cucumbers and onion with salt in colander set over large bowl. Weight the cucumbers down to press out as much moisture as possible using a gallon-size ziploc bag. Allow them to drain for 1-3 hours. Rinse and pat dry.
  • Bring 2/3 C water and 1/2 C vinegar to boil in small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar to dissolve, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
  • Mix the cucumbers, onions, and jalapenos together then pour the dressing over the top, tossing to coat. Chill until ready to serve.
