  • 1 firm medium-sized cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon white pepper
  • small onion, peeled and sliced lengthwise into paper-thin slivers
  • 12 paper-thin lengthwise slivers of hot fresh red chili about inch long

  • How To Cook:
    1. Wash the cucumber under cold running water and pat it completely dry with paper towels.

    2. With a small, sharp knife pare the cucumber length-wise, leaving -inch-widestrips of green peel alternating with -inch-wide strips of the white flesh. Cut the cucumber crosswise into the thinnest possible slices.

    3. In a deep bowl stir the vinegar, sugar, salt and white pepper together until they are well blended. Add the cucumber, onion and chili, and turn them about with a spoon until the vegetables are evenly coated with the vinegar mixture.

    4. Serve at once or cover tightly and refrigerate for no more than 2 or 3 hours before serving. Serve with Thai curries.
