Salad
  1. 1 English cucumber, chopped
  2. 1 shallot, minced
  3. 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced small
  4. 2 green onions, sliced thin
  5. 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  6. 1/4 cup roughly chopped dry roasted peanuts (preferably Valencia peanuts)
Dressing
  1. 2 Tbsp. fish sauce
  2. juice of 1/2 lime
  3. 1 clove garlic, minced
  4. 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  5. 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, to taste
  6. 1-1/2 tsp. sugar, to taste
Instructions
  1. Cut the cucumber lengthwise, then again twice for each half so you end up with 6 long strips. Chop the cucumbers across the strips so you have small bite-sized pieces of cucumber.
  2. Place the cucumber, minced shallot, green onion, red pepper, and cilantro in a bowl.
  3. Combine the ingredients for the dressing.
  4. Pour about half of the dressing over the salad and toss. Taste to see if you need more - this dressing is strong, so add a little at a time!
  5. Sprinkle roasted peanuts over the top and serve.
