For those the following recipe for "Cucumber Vietnamese Kitchen" (Ten Speed Press). Cucumber and Shrimp Salad (Goi Du'a Chuot'00 Serves 4 to 6 Ingredients cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes) 1 3 tablespoons sugar 1 3 tablespoons fish sauce 1 2 tablespoons water 1 or 2 Thai or serrano chiles, finely chopped (optional) A 2 to 2 pounds pickling (Kirby) or English cucumbers 1 1 carrot, peeled and finely shredded 2 teaspoons salt teaspoon sugar boneless, skinless Chicken breast, about 1/4 pound boneless pork loin chop, about 1/4 pound pound precooked bay or small salad shrimp cup unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted and crushed in a mortar 1. To make the dressing, in a small bowl, combine the lime juice, sugar, fish sauce, water, and chiles and stir to dissolve the sugar. Set aside to develop the flavors. 2. Trim off the ends of each cucumber, and then halve lengthwise. Use a teaspoon to remove the seeds from each half (the English cucumbers will have few seeds). Cut the halves crosswise into slices a scant 1/8-inch thick. A razor sharp knife or a Japanese Benriner slicer produces the most attractive, uniformly thin slices. A food processor can be used but will yield less satisfactory results. Put the cucumbers and carrot in a large bowl, add 11/2 tea- spoons of the salt and the sugar, and toss to mix. Set aside for 30 minutes to weep. A pool of juice will accumulate at the bottom of the bowl. 3. Drain the cucumbers and carrot in a colander and place under cold running water to rinse off as much salt and sugar as possible.

Do this 3 or 4 times, You want to extract enough water from the cucumber yet not completely crush it. (The cucumber will become a beauti- ful translucent green, in marked contrast to the color of the carrot.) Return the vegetables to the bowl and fluff them up to release them from their cramped state. Set aside. 4. Trim any excess fat from the pork chop. Fill a small saucepan half full with water, add the remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Drop in the chicken breast and pork chop. When the water starts bubbling at the edges of the pan, remove the pan from the heat and cover tightly. Let stand for 20 minutes.
