      We love this side dish! I made two additions (1) to the liquid, add 1 tsp+ of Sambal Oilek (ground fresh chili paste) available in your Asian food section. It gives the cukes and nice kick. (2) one medium RED onion. I slice 2 big cukes and 1 red onion paper thin on a mandolin. They absorb the liquid better and taste phenomenal! You will never want American pickles again.

      This was so refreshing along with Peanut Chicken Over Rice (#30193), and some leftover 2 days later was still crunchy and much spicier. I added a few very thin-cut slices of sweet onion I had on hand. Reminds me of the Thai restaurant we used have locally. Thanks!

      I have been searching for years for this recipe. I added 1/4 of a small red onion, sliced paper thin. I also added one single, seeded, Thai pepper. It was perfect, took me straight back to my favorite Thai restaurant!
