I got this recipe out of our local paper. It is from "The Pickled Pantry" and it is very good.

Prep:

15 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1/2 c
rice vinegar
2 tsp
granulated sugar
1 tsp
pickling or fine sea salt
6 c
thinly sliced cucumbers
1
mild red onion thinly sliced--or other mild sweet onion
1
red or green fresh chile, seeded and thinly sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small saucepan or microwave container, combine the rice vinegar, sugar and salt and heat just enough to completely dissolve the sugar. Let cool to room temperature.
2
In a large bowl, combine the cucumber slices, onion and chile with the vinegar mixture and toss gently. The cucumbers will seem dry, but the salt will draw out moisture from the cucumbers to create more brine.
3
Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. The cucumbers can be refrigerated in a sterile container for at least a week. They probably won't last that long!
4
Very good with grilled foods and along side any Oriental meal. Enjoy!
