Instructions

Begin by making your dressing, so that the garlic and herbs can marinate in the sauce while you prep the other ingredients. Mince the green onions, coriander, garlic, shallots, and red chili peppers, and mix them together in a measuring cup. Measure and pour in the fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, cayenne pepper, and honey. Stir the dressing until you have a paste, and let it sit while you prepare the cucumbers.

Thoroughly wash the cucumbers so you may leave the skin on, and remove each end. Slice paper thin, and place in a bowl with the chopped peanuts. Mix in the dressing, and place the salad in your refrigerator to allow the cucumbers time to soak up the flavor!
