2 hot house cucumbers, thinly sliced

2 fresh hot red chiles, thinly sliced

2 large handfuls fresh mint leaves

2 cups rice vinegar

4 teaspoons sugar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine the cucumbers, chiles, and mint in a mixing bowl. Pour in the vinegar, sprinkle with the sugar, salt, and pepper. Toss everything together so the cucumbers are well coated with the vinegar. Refrigerate overnight if possible; the cucumbers will soften as they marinate and the flavors will deepen.
