One of my favorite things about this time of the year are the fresh cucumbers. I don’t mean the cucumbers you buy at the grocery store. I’m talking about the ones you grow in your garden or buy at the local farmer’s market. Can you taste the difference between fresh local cucumbers and the ones at the grocery store? Fresh or locally grown cucumbers taste so much better than anything you can purchase at the store. In fact, I rarely purchase cucumbers from the store as I think they lack good texture and flavor. But, I can’t resist devouring the cucumbers from my garden. They are crisp, crunchy and the perfect addition to this salad. The simple vinaigrette adds a subtle and delicious flavor to the salad.
If you are looking for a side dish or salad to bring to a summer dinner party or gathering, this Thai Cucumber Salad couldn’t be any easier.
