Thai Cucumber Salad

Thai Cucumber Salad image

This Thai Cucumber Salad is a summer favorite, but that doesn’t make it any less tasty the rest of the year! Enjoy this light, refreshing and tangy cucumber salad as a side to your favorite Asian-inspired dish, or on its own!

This dish incorporates a favorite herb of ours, cilantro . The health benefits of this powerful antioxidant are well-documented, and we can’t get enough of the fresh taste (especially when combined with lime!). It’s also very easy to grow, so add this one to your herb garden.

Pair this Thai Cucumber Salad with our Greek Style Zucchini-Lamb Burgers for a complete dish.

One of our favorite anti-inflammatory diet recipes, and Fully Functional® approved!
