Thai Cucumber Salad with Peanut Chili Vinaigrette is a light and flavorful salad with a sweet and spicy dressing and loaded with vegetables!

Ever since our heart to heart on Wednesday, I've felt a burden off my shoulders. Amazing expressing your emotions, as opposed to keeping them bottled up, makes the situation seem more manageable.

I've been struggling with just how much I share on this site. That ties in with the food to sharing a story between sharing much of my life. But more times than not, when I feel like I've a lot on my plate, I struggle with writing a post that is nice. Because there's just so many ways that you can compose"This recipe is ah-mazing! You have gotta make it!"

I haven't been the one to share a lot of my life (despite working in a really social biz), but I realize that's exactly what makes this site unique. Behind the food that I hope you all love, I realize that part of tales and my life is what makes my little corner of the net unique.

Section of telling my story, is currently sharing my ups and downs. although leaning more ups inspiring you and having us join on a deeper connection than that feeling in our gut!

I have begun using light, with life's up and downs recently. Of working with lighting, the strain was too much. I could figure out it and of planning around once the sunlight is the very best in my home, the idea was too much. I need the freedom when it fits my schedule of shooting. Which could mean moving to that yoga course I adore during time . Because yoga is good for my soul!

And not to mention if this family is entered by our babe. I will not be the one making my program they'll be in control! Something that I need to be engulfed in. A hands on mother that's not tied down to work (<-- a whole other story I am slightly terrified about!) .

What do you think about these pictures? The last couple of weeks are taken with my new light. Some what's a learning curve ? But I'm all sorts of love!

Ps...these are likely some of my favourite photos up to now! Darn colorful.
Healthy Recipe, Thai Cucumber Salad with Peanut Chili Vinaigrette
Now. Food! This Thai Cucumber Salad is my obsession. And it is in fact ah-mazing. Instead of rice noodles of a peanut salad that was normal, I swapped in cucumber noodles. Because swim suit season!! They're cooling with each bite and refreshing. Carrots, the peppers and onions add some crunch . The dressing table is easy. I'm talking in throw it into a bowl and you're ready to go. Prep it and you're set for the week!

I strongly suggest a crisp, exceptionally fresh Kirby cucumber as regular cucumbers can become quite soft. And try to not spiralize the cucumber far in advance as they're quite watery. Store in an air tight container and I love to chop the rest of the ingredients. After that, spiralize the cucumbers and keep them in a separate container, combine when its meal time and drizzle with the dressing and a good sprinkle of crushed peanuts.

Then devour!
