Wonderful light side dish. I kept the onion and green pepper on the large size by just slicing them. (based on other reviewers suggestion). I love the sweetness of this dish. It was perfect, not overly sweet and just a touch of tartness. I did cut the recipe in half and put everything (after the 4 hr cooling time) in a large jar and let it sit for 48 hrs in the refrigerator. The cucumber added to the liquid and helped marinate them even more. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2009 :)
