Asian Cucumber Salad

Asian Cucumber Salad

I love this Asian Cucumber Salad because it is so full of flavor and very low on calories.  I really like how colorful it is too with the red peppers, carrots, and my favorite- edamame.  It makes such a pretty side dish.  You will love the homemade dressing, it’s a little bit of a sweet cilantro vinaigrette kind of flavor. This is a great side for any asian or thai food.  I especially like to serve it with satay or curry dishes.  But it is also great on its own.
Another thing that I love to do with this cucumber salad is serve it on top of a sliced baguette with a little bit of cream cheese.  It makes an amazing appetizer!
