This cucumber salad recipe is easy to make and brimming with the quintessential tastes of Thai cooking. And it takes only 10 minutes to make!
Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then repeat with each half until you have a number of long strips. Now slice the other way to dice the cucumber. Place in a salad bowl.
Add the shallot, green onion, chilli/red pepper, and coriander to the cucumber (keep back a little extra coriander to garnish the salad).
Combine the dressing ingredients together in a cup, stirring to dissolve the shrimp paste. Tip: that the dressing will taste pungent now, but will be perfect once it is on the salad.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well.
To serve, scoop or slide salad onto a serving platter or place in a serving bowl. Top with the ground/chopped peanuts, plus extra coriander. If desired, garnish with a slice of lime. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 hours.*

A simple salad using farmer's market fresh ingredients with a tangy dressing that will have your mouth watering.
Modified recipe of one of my favourite salads served at Sava's restaurant in Ann Arbor, MI. The main differences include a lack of asparagus, omitting garnishing the salad with blue cheese (which I find overpowering!) and using an alternate dressing to balsamic. I've also prepared the differently by coating them in a Dijon mustard mixture before roasting.
A recipe which changes a normal bread into an exotic dish with a garlicky flavour. The garlic butter which you prepare can be stored for later use also. Here, I used buns for this recipe. Cut them into half horizontally and spread the garlic butter. If the garlic gets burnt slightly, no probs...it gives an extra taste to the bread.
This creamy coleslaw is an excellent sidekick to baked/fried chicken, fish, burgers etc. Although this dish calls for simple ingredients, the final creation was incredibly sublime. This recipe for the ever popular coleslaw offers layers of flavor. The creamy mayonnaise clubbed with the sharpness of vinegar, good tasting mustard and sweetness of sugar provides a wonderful base for the dressing, which permeates through the entire salad. This is a sure hit with the kids if served interestingly.
