3 large cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and slice thinly (use a mandoline, if you have one)
1 shredded or sliced CARROT
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped ( I didn’t add this because of the kiddies, but I did put crushed red peppers in my
serving to give it that Thai kick.)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
½ onion – sliced thinly
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small red bell pepper – sliced
1 TSP salt
Zest of one lime
2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon canola oil (I used olive oil)
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1. Whisk together the sugar and vinegar in a mixing bowl until the sugar has dissolved.
2. Then add everything else; toss to combine.
3. Set aside for at least one hour, stirring occasionally (this can be marinated for up to 8 hours, but refrigerate if marinating for longer than 2 hours).
4. Sprinkle cilantro and/or chopped peanuts on top before serving.
