    I made this absolutely delicious!!!
    I forgot to add the honey and it was still fantastic and that's important for me because I do keto.
    But I think this is one of those salads u make and eat right away.

    This recipe is FABULOUS! I’m eating it right now for breakfast. It is light, delicious and filling. I did a half portion and won’t make that mistake again, honey. The dressing alone will be a staple to my homemade dressings. 🙏🏾 Thank you so much for sharing this delish-dish 😊❤️🙌🏾

    Made this today by shredding an english cucumber in my big kitchenaid and loved it. I added fresh parsley. The fresh lime is so good in this recipe. Can't wait to repeat. This will become a regular for me.

    After shredding the cucumber I would let it drain or squeeze the liquid
    I think the excess liquid would dilute the dressing

    If I have to decide between rice sauce and fish sauce,which one I can omit. I don’t want to buy both since I won’t use it later. And I hate waste. Thanks a lot for your sharing, you are such a humble lady. Blessings

    Spray or put a small amount of oil in the bowl for the honey & it won't stick or at least be easier to remove from bowl.
    I would use everything but honey - the only sweet salad I like is a fruit salad. I Love cucumber & can't wait to
    try this recipe. PEACE & BLESSINGS

      Joe Ann maybe add some sugar in the rice wine, or substitute balsamic vinegar for the rice wine? That would add the hint of sweetness without being too much
