"A spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar." -Benjamin Franklin, American statesman

The refrigerator light goes on...

When I was a kid in Atlanta my mom used to make cucumbers and onions with white vinegar, a touch of salt and pepper and just enough sugar to take the bite off. The flavors are the same - Southeast America, Southeast Asia - just subtle differences.

Thai Cucumber Salad


Combine the rice vinegar, lime zest, Tabasco, Splenda or stevia, red onion, cucumber slices, and cilantro leaves in a glass or stainless steel bowl.

You can add the peanuts now and let them marinate. They will be slightly chewy, but I prefer to sprinkle them over the top of the salad right before serving.

Marinate at least 2 hours.
