    Altered ingredient amounts. Great refreshing taste. I increased the sugar slightly and used sea salt instead of reg salt. Will definately make again.  -  24 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I used white onion (I did not have a red onion) and doubled the sugar. After marinating for several hours, the onion flavour was overpowering so I drained the liquid and added 2 more teaspoons of sugar to sweeten it. I am going to put it on a sandwich with cream cheese, tomatoes and avocado.  -  24 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. I love cucumber and red onion together. I used more sugar and regular vinegar instead of the rice wine. I also threw in some dill for added flavour and they were delicious. Thanks Ann  -  24 Jul 2008
