Last week we presented a class at the Thomas F Chapman Family Cancer Wellness center on Healthy Thai-Style cooking – this was one of the recipes that everyone enjoyed.
We love using mint because it promotes healthy digestion and aids in decreasing any nausea. And mint alone is a natural stimulant so besides taking in some of this beautiful spring weather in Atlanta; you can enjoy this recipe to lift your mood too!
Thai Cucumber Salad
- 1 English Cucumber
- ½ Red Onion
- ½ Cup Packed Mint Leaves, coarsely chopped
- 2 TB Rice Wine Vinegar
- 1 TB Black or Toasted Sesame Oil
- 1 TB Thai Chili Sauce
- ½ tsp Fish Sauce
- Black Sesame Seeds for Garnish
Slice the cucumber and red onion very thinly – using a mandoline or peeler. Place them in a bowl with the mint leaves.
Shake the remaining ingredients together in a jar. Toss the ingredients together just before serving.
