Cucumber salad is one of my favorite Thai snacks! It’s light, fresh, packed with flavor, virtually fat free & best of all easy to make.


  • 1 whole cucumber (I prefer the English Hothouse variety)
  • 1 shallot
  • A couple of red [bell] pepper slivers
  • A few cilantro stems
  • Fresh ½ lime juiced
  • Couple of pinches of salt
  • Couple of Pinches of sugar
  • A few dashes of white vinegar
  • A little water


  • Thinly slice cucumber
  • Chop pepper slivers
  • Finely mince cilantro
  • Coarsely mince shallot
  • Mix wet & dry ingredients until dry ingredients are dissolved
  • Add veggies to the wet mixture & toss
  • Serve salad chilled & enjoy!

I garnished with a few sesame seeds & some fresh cracked pepper & it was off the chain. Mindspill

Why am I posting this? Well because I fucked up on my diet but not bad over the past 2 weeks. I am getting back on track this week so that I can get past this 16lb weight loss. I have major work to do to make my 20lb goal by month end.

BTW: I’m an old school cook & just like my mother, I measure nothing. When it looks right/smells right/feels right, I know its good to go.
