Marinated Cucumbers
4 to 6 servings

1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large cucumber
1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
some sliced Bermuda onion

In a small pan, combine vinegar, water, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until liquid boils and sugar is dissolved; remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Peel cucumber; cut lengthwise, scoop out and discard seeds, slice cucumber into 1/8-inch slices. Place in serving bowls, pour marinade over cucumbers; stir to blend. If made ahead, cover and refrigerate for UP TO 2 HOURS (does not keep well after that).

Top with Peanuts or slices of Bermuda onion if desired.
