Thai Cucumber Salad
This was adapted from a recipe that I found a few years back. Sorry I forgot what book this came from (pretty lousy for a librarian), but hey! I do love this dish and it is great when I make Satay or any Thai meal. And it is super easy!
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 cucumbers, peeled, quartered and cut into 1/8" slices
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1. Combine vinegar, water and sugar in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Stir until the sugar dissolves and then remove from the heat to let cool.
2. In another bowl, combine the cucumbers and red onions. Pour cooled vinegar mixture and mix gently.
3. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
