Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad Recipe

This Thai inspired cucumber salad goes great with a curry.


  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 5 Tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 -3 small cucumbers, seeded and sliced
  • 2 small chilis, diced seeds removed if you'd like less heat
  • 1 small red onion, sliced


  • Mix together the hot water, sugar, salt and vinegar, then let cool to room temperature so you don't cook the cucumbers!
  • If you don't have rice vinegar, you can use white vinegar.
