1/2 Hot House Cucumbers quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into 0.5'' pieces
2 tablespoons Cooking Oil
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar (packed)
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1/2 cup Roasted Peanuts finely chopped

Directions

Cook beans in boiling water until tender crisp, 4-5 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again.

Boil potatoes until tender when pierced, then cut into 3/4

Drain tofu and cut into 3/4

Soak tamarind pulp in 1/2 cup of hot water for 10-15 minutes; then squeeze the pulp to extract all the juices, and strain through a sieve to remove the seeds.

In a blender, process shallots, chiles, dried shrimp paste, and cold water until smooth.

For dressing 

Place a wide frying pan over medium-low heat until hot. 

Add oil, swirling to coat sides. 

Add shallot mixture and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 6-8 minutes. Add brown sugar, soy sauce, and tamarind water; simmer for 2 minutes. 

Add peanuts and simmer for 2 additional minutes. 

Pour dressing into a serving bowl and let cool.

Arrange long beans, potatoes, tofu, eggs, bean sprouts, bell pepper and cucumber in separate piles on a serving platter. Serve dressing alongside.
