Indonesian Cucumber Salad
I made this recipe as a side dish and really enjoyed it. It reminds me a little bit of the cucumber salad you can find in many Thai restaurants, but I love the addition of cilantro. I used one red Thai chili when I made this and it had a great spicy kick to it, but I suggest using less if you have a low tolerance for spicy foods. Serve this as a side dish for any Southeast Asian inspired meal.
