The ginger in this recipe makes it irresistible. I know it says to serve 10 minutes after it is prepared. This seems to be important. I prepared it about 1 1/2 hours before I served it. In that time the water had drained from the cucumbers and there was too much sauce, and the sauce was too watery. It was better when I tasted it right after I had prepared it. Excellent mix of flavors.



Did not have tamarind juice so googled substitute which is 1/4 cup OJ + 2 tbs of lime juice. I like my Thai cucumber salad a little sweeter, so added 1 packet of Splenda. with added sweetner rate 5 stars



This was fabulous. I accidentally put one and a half tablespoons of brown sugar, so then I just basically doubled/tripled the other ingredients to make up for it. I also ate this immediately, but next time I will salt the cucumbers for an hour or so before mixing with the sauce, so I can refrigerate any leftovers without the cucumbers getting soggy.
