Have made this many times. Add other veggies including julienne carrots and radishes for variety. Usually make it with green onions. The dressing is spicy, tangy and sweet. Made it again last night with Chicken Thighs with Sesame Ginger Glaze and it did not disappoint!
This was fabulous - I served it to two guests and we gobbled up all four servings. I made it again a couple days later but was out of peanuts so I threw in a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter instead. Might I take this moment to not recommend that option. The peanut butter mixed with the lime and cucumber juice and the flavor became diluted. Watery. Meh. So, follow those directions and eat up! Will totally make this (the right way) again.
