Tasty and refreshing. A great cooling accompaniment to serve with curry puffs. Best served cooled. Allow for chilling time.

Cool, refreshing, hot, tangy, sweet and sour............those are all the flavours and tastes we got from this SUPREMELY easy and yet stunning dipping sauce!!! I used half a cucumber & half the ingredients listed, as I knew we would not eat a large batch - only the two of us at home at present; we used this dip with some delicious Nems from a local Vietnamese take away restaurant. This was such a pretty dip as well as being easy......I intend to make a full batch when I next cook a FULL ON Oriental meal!!! Made for Leggy Peggy's Tag game in the Aussie/NZ forum and VERY much enjoyed - thanks!! FT:-)
