I found this recipe over at One Perfect Bite and like all of the ingredients (although I am the only one that I ever serve food to that does). The author of the recipe advised that they make this as a salad and serve it with Thai Coconut Curry. It is crisp and cool with a hot kick.
Yield: 3 cups.
Combine vinegar, water,sugar and salt in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar and salt dissolve. Set aside. Cool.
The recipe advised to cut cucumbers into 4 long strips then each strip crosswise into bite size triangles - I just cut it into small cubes. I then chopped the onion into small bits and measured out the red pepper flakes then poured into a container and mixed everything together.
Add cooled dressing.
Can be served at room or chilled. I served mine chilled.
