All day today I’ve been thinking about getting a puppy. I really want a little Basset Hound puppy because I adore all things pathetic. However, I’ve never potty-trained a dog before and it kind of sounds like a lot of work.

I’ve been watching many of my friends/relatives/co-workers/EVERYONE I KNOW have kids these past few years and potty training looks really hard. Do you think it’s easier to potty train a kid, or a puppy?

So… speaking of things that are easy, let’s talk about this Thai Cucumber Salad with Cashews (sweet segue, right?).

Thai Cucumber Cashew Salad: This Thai cucumber salad recipe mixes cucumbers, cashews, with a brown sugar, chili-garlic sauce, cilantro and lime juice for a delicious salad to add to your next Thai dinner.

This salad with cashews has it all. It’s sweet, spicy, sour, and salty – what more could you ask for? Other than a puppy, I mean.

The cashews add just the right amount of texture and crunch.

You can make this cashew salad recipe ahead of time and let it marinate in your fridge, but don’t add the cashews until you’re serving it up or they will get soggy and gross.

I’d also recommend going for the roasted-salted cashews rather than the plain raw ones, but if all you can find is raw, don’t let that keep you from making this.
