Thai Cucumber Salad

This low carb, paleo-friendly Thai Cucumber Salad is a perfect summer side dish. Light and easy to make, the spicy Thai dressing will make your tastebuds sing!

Low Carb Paleo Thai Cucumber SaladA few days ago, I was making lasagna with zucchini and today I am all about cucumber noodles. You just have to love all the wonderful things you can do with fresh vegetables to replace the old carb-heavy standbys. I will say that working with a spiral vegetable cutter might be the most fun I’ve ever had with a kitchen tool. I love the way it cut the cucumber into long, curly slices like this. Of course, you don’t need a spiralizer to make this light, summery low carb salad. You could do just as well with a mandolin or a sharp knife and cut your cucumbers into crosswise slices. However you decide to do it, this salad is perfect for a summer bbq or backyard get together. Or you could do what I did and keep it all for yourself.

I created this recipe for SheKnows.com and it was love at first bite. I adore the spicy flavors of Thai cuisine but I hate that there’s usually so much added sugar. Not to mention the carby noodles and rice that come along with it. But it’s easy to recreate these flavors at home in a healthier way. A little hot chill, some fish sauce, some lime and cilantro and you’ve got it made. If you’re strict Paleo, be sure to use the Red Boat brand fish sauce and coconut aminos.

  1. What is your vegetable spiralizer of choice? There are several kinds on the market and I can’t decide which kind to invest in. Thanks.

  3. These cucumbers look amazing! I’ve been thinking about getting a spiralizer and between this and your zucchini lasagna I might be sold!

  4. I love the spiralized cucumbers in your salad!

  5. These look beautiful! My daughter introduced me to the spiralizer, and we love it! Haven’t thought of using cucumber, though.
