A simple refreshing cucumber side to complement any spicy entree. Also known as Tam Taeng
A refreshingly cool complement to any spicy entree. This 3 minute salad is a very simple version of a popular side dish. I serve this Thai salad with spicy chicken wings and Korean food which results in a harmonious international partnership of cuisine. Mr. Craftiness and Miss B both really like this salad which makes it a unanimous winner in my house. It fits nicely into any diet and is incredibly easy and fast to whip up.
1 english or hothouse cucumber
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
