Peanut Cucumber Salad

Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings
Although this tangy, simply dressed cucumber salad was inspired by a dish the Shaw family enjoyed in a Chinese restaurant, Eva Shaw has found that it complements almost any meal.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 English cucumbers (about 1 1/2 lb. total)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
