"A spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar."
-Benjamin Franklin, American statesman
When I was a kid in Atlanta my mom used to make cucumbers and onions with white vinegar, a touch of salt and pepper and just enough sugar to take the bite off. The flavors are the same – Southeast America, Southeast Asia – just subtle differences.
Rice vinegar is made from fermented rice. It's a staple in Asian cooking but I like to use it in other types of recipes. Because it is less acidic than most vinegars and has a soft flavor it is a great choice for recipes where you don't want as bright a vinegar flavor.

|1 cup||rice vinegar|
|1 tsp||lime zest (minced)|
|1/4 tsp||Tabasco sauce|
|2 Tbsp||Splenda or stevia|
|1/2 cup||red onion (diced)|
|2 large||cucumbers (sliced)|
|1/4 cup||cilantro leaves|
|1 Tbsp||raw peanuts|
Combine the rice vinegar, lime zest, Tabasco, Splenda, red onion, cucumber slices and cilantro leaves in a glass or stainless steel bowl.
You can add the peanuts now and let them marinate. They will be slightly chewy, but I prefer to sprinkle them over the top of the salad when I am serving.
Marinate at least 2 hours.
