This was just like the restaurant's peanut cucumber salad that I always order. The only difference is that they also serve it with some shredded carrots and chopped red onion which I added. It's more sweet then spicy so if you want a little more zing then sweet, I suggest that you add an extra jalapeno and cut the sugar by 1/3. I will definitely make this again.

This was tasty. I made this in advance and the cucumber shed all the water so it really had a lot of liquid in it. next time I'll remember to assemble it shortly before I eat it.

I recently helped my date make this salad for dinner and it turned out amazing. The salad is very easy to make and the flavors are very refreshing. If you’re looking for a simple salad give this one a try and you won’t be disappointed.
