Thai food is one of my favorite cuisines, with its fresh, bold and spicy flavors. Of course, Thai takeout isn't always low-carb or paleo-friendly, as it's often served with rice or noodles and many of the sauces contain added sugars. But recreating the flavors of Thai food at home is easy and the results can be absolutely delicious and much friendlier to your waistline.
For this low-carb cucumber salad, I simply paired thinly sliced cucumber with a Thai-inspired spicy dressing. I cut my cucumber on a spiral cutter to get long, thin noodles but you could also cut them thinly with a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer. Because the salt in the dressing tends to release the moisture in the cucumbers, make sure you dress the salad just prior to serving.
