This is an excellent recipe. The flavor is just perfect. I doubled it and used a serrano chili, since I couldn't find a thai chili. It was a hit with all. Thanks for sharing the recipe, which I will definitely make again. Made for ZWT6.

Wild taste sensation, and just adore the chili peppers, chopped. The lime juice addition perfectly balanced out the vinegar/ginger/brown sugar combo, and these were so good they could of been sent to outer stratosphere. I let my cukes get rid of their extra fluid by putting them in a colander first with a little salt. Made for *ZWT Six* Zee Zesty Zany Cookz May 2010
