“The Thais, like other people who live in hot climates, are quick to appreciate the refreshing qualities of the cucumber. This simple salad is very popular and very rarely varied. Scouring the cucumbers decoratively, as the Thais would do, makes this dish visually alluring. This recipe comes from a great little book called 'The Best of Thailand'.”
