Recipe for Thai Style Cucumber Salad - a quick and easy salad great for accompanying Asian dishes.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup thinly red onion
  • 1 large English cucumber, unpeeled, seeded and thinly sliced (or chopped small, either cutting style works well for this salad)

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, vinegar, water, crushed red pepper and salt.  Heat over medium and heat and stir until sugar and salt dissolves.
  2. Put cucumber and onion in a small bowl, pour marinade over to cover the veggies, cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.  The salad will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge, so make extra for later.
