Peaches go savory with cucumbers in this refreshing summer salad. Use any type of fresh cucumber, such as lemon cucumber, Persian or English. Serve it with grilled halibut, chicken or shrimp or rice noodles.
Combine the cucumbers and peaches in a large mixing bowl with the scallions, garlic, and chile. Add the fish sauce, lime juice and sugar and toss gently to combine well. Let sit for about 10 minutes.
Toss again and taste for seasoning. The salad will hold in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours.
Just before serving, add the basil leaves and cashews and serve.
