Here is a unique recipe my sister Donna gave me. I'm not sure where she got it from, so I apologize for not giving proper credit where it is due...
Thai Cucumber Salad
2 cucumbers, sliced thickly
1 to 2 jalapeno peppers sliced
1 small onion, diced or halved and sliced thinly
2/3 cups hot water
2T white vinegar
In an airtight container, combine vegetables. In a large measuring cup, dissolve sugar and salt in water. Add vinegar. Pour liquid over vegetables, cover and chill for at least one hour (best if allowed to chill overnight). Will keep in the refridgerator for up to one week.
