I made a salad last week, you peel and seed the cucumber, about a lb of it, and cut it into long thin strips. Then you make a dressing with tamarind juice, fish sauce, garlic, thai chilis and a little sweetener. Toss the cucumbers with the dressing and add a handful of quartered cherry tomatoes. Yum!

I guess amounts would help. IIRC, it was 6T tamarind juice, 6 cloves minced garlic, 1/4 c fish sauce, 2 T sugar (I used agave, we're out of sugar), and chili to taste.

I love cucumbers and always have, so I don't know how to make you like them. As long as you like other veggies, it's ok to skip a vegetable you can't stand.
For example, I HATE celery and the smell alone makes me nauseous. But I eat broccoli, green beans, and kale all the time so it doesn't matter if I hate celery.

I add cucumbers to all kinds of dishes just to have them and will sometimes just eat the cucumber all by itself because I like it so much lol.
