Thai Cucumber Salad recipe

This is a super salad to take to picnics or parties as you're guaranteed to be the only one making it. Cucumber combines with chillies, peanuts, coriander, rice vinegar, sugar and salt, to create a sweet yet tangy salad with punches of creamy peanut.


  • 3 large cucumbers
  • 125ml rice wine vinegar
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 75g peanuts
  • 2 red chillies
  • Small handful freshly chopped coriander


  1. Peel the cucumbers then slice lengthways. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon, then chop into chunks.

  2. Toss the cucumber with the salt in a colander. Leave in the sink to drain for 30 minutes, then rinse with cold water and pat dry with kitchen towel.

  3. Roughly chop the peanuts. Finely chop the chillies, deseeding if you don't like it too hot.

  4. Whisk together the sugar and vinegar until the sugar has dissolved, add the cucumber, chillies and coriander, stir and then sprinkle the peanuts over the top.

Add more peanuts if you like their flavour. You can omit one of the chillies if you prefer the flavour rather than the heat. This recipe serves 6-8.
