Cucumbers in Rice Wine Vinegar

Now doesn't THAT look cool and refreshing?

Well my darling little peaches, it is.

Cool and refreshing.

Not to mention a snap to create and just as easy to enjoy.

I tell you, it's a winner.

Perfect with cocktails, or as a side dish on these hot summer nights, this creation is sure to tempt.

So try it, and taste the joy.

1 hothouse cucumber
1 red bell pepper
1/2 of a small onion
3/4 cup sweetened, seasoned rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
pinch of white pepper

Using your sharpest knife or a mandoline slicer, cut the cucumber into the thinnest rounds you possibly can.

Do the same with the onion.

Next up, the pepper.

Toss those with the rest of the ingredients. Let marinate 15 minutes or up to 3 hours.

Taste and adjust salt and sugar as needed.

(Want to change it up? Add fresh ginger, or sesame seeds. Red onions are nice too!)


Cucumbers are one of the oldest cultivated vegetables, having been cultivated since about 8,000 B.C.

Rice wine vinegar is made from rice and creates a less acidic product than other types of vinegar. It is available sweetened or plain.
