 Thai Cucumber Relish
We call it  'Acar Timun' in Indonesia. I just learned that many people call this Thai Cucumber Relish. It serves as condiment to main dish or quick vegetable side dish that I often make whenever I ran out of time.

The ingredients:

Some prefer to eat cucumber with its skin. I prefer to peel it off...

then cut them out into small cubes.

I happened to have these lovely grape tomatoes from the Farmer Market so take a cup and cut them in half

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix them up with spoon or wooden spatula.
 Thai Cucumber Relish That's it! Easy Peasy, right?
