    This was excellent! Addictive really. I used mini cucumbers to equal a large one, red pepper flavored rice vinegar & no wine. Also, sweet mayan onion (red was too strong). I used my mandoline slicer to make sure slices were uniform & thin. I had chili paste but used Sriracha instead. Yum! - 1/13/13

  • Good. I let it set a day to blend the flavors and it is just a bit too vinegary. Next time I either will not let it set or add some oil to cut the vinegar. - 9/4/12
