Talking Marinated Cucumbers (a condiment from Thailand)

We had these the other night at a friends house.
They very yummy!

1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cucumber
1/4 cup chopped peanuts or cashews

In a small pan, combine vinegar, sugar, water, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the liquid boils and the sugar is dissolved; remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Peel and slice the cucumber. Place in a bowl and pour the marinade over the cucumber slices; stir to blend. If made ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Top with peanuts or cashews, if desired. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Excellent cool summer salad.

If you have some fish sauce, you might add that, too.

I like mine with a minced bird pepper and som cilantro.

I've never heard of bird pepper. I'll have to
go google it.

Thanks for the added ideas. I've written them down on
my paper copy!!

A bird pepper is a small hot pepper used a lot in Thai cuisine. You can usually find them fresh in asian markets.

But a jalepeno or serrano would do just fine.

Thanks, they are pretty but, since I'm not in to "hot" I think I'll pass on them. My mouth is sure to thank me for that decision.

The Cukes are coming in fast now and this looks good.

I'll bump this so I can find it later.

I'm gonna try the fish sauce and hot peppers too.

Thanks for bumping I'd use rice vinegar for this. I also like to add a tiny sprinkle of cayenne pepper. It's not Thai, but sometimes I use agave syrup rather than make simple syrup; it's just easier.

Btw, you can subscribe to a thread and then find it later in your user control panel.

Bumping subscribes me to the thread and it also brings it to the attention of others.

That's a win,win if you want to view it that way.

Who knows I might get a suggestion.






Gotta use these Cukes somehow.

Marinated Cucumbers (a condiment from Thailand)

This is similar to my freezer pickles. I slice cukes thinly, salt, drain and rinse well, then mix with the syrup. They freeze very well. You can throw in some thinly sliced onion too. Also nice with some sliced hot or sweet peppers.

Bumping subscribes you to the thread? It doesn't work that way for me. I wasn't suggesting you shouldn't bump a thread - just that I find it easier to find one again by subscribing.
