Recipe Directions

Combine the sliced cucumbers and onion in a large bowl. Add the 1 tablespoon salt and mix thoroughly, making sure all the cucumbers are well coated. Cover, and allow the salted cucumbers to sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour, overnight is fine.
Using a cheesecloth, or just your hands, squeeze the liquid from the cucumbers. Do this one handful at a time and place in a large mixing bowl. Combine the honey, vinegar, lime juice, chiles, and salt. Pour over the cucumbers and stir to combine.
In a blender, mix the coconut meat and coconut water until smooth. Pour over the cucumbers and stir to combine. Serve chilled.

Mygreenmojo's Thoughts

This is a raw version of a dish I used to make all the time before going raw. It was nearly raw anyway, and the raw version is just as good, if not better than the original. It has a nice balance of salty, tangy, spicy, and sweet flavors. Enjoy!

Yep, but raw honey is raw and so is coconut vinegar. I just gave some options since not everyone is 100%.

Agave is 100% for sure, not a raw product, neither is rice vinegar.

Yum! I love cucumber salad. I'm going to make this tonight! I'm thinking of an entire theme... Thai coconut soup... nori rolls... and spicy cucumber soup. Thanks for posting.
