Thai Cucumber Salad
Stunningly simple, very flavorful. We love this salad, although it's difficult to find the fresh red chilies around our market, but when I do find them I immediately dig out this recipe. I have added thinly sliced spicy sausage, I had something like this in a Thai restaurant and they served it with the sausage giving this a sweet and hot flavor, more of an appetizer than salad. Try it you wont be disappointed.
