   Here’s an excellent side dish to go with Satay,
   grilled fowl or meats, fish--just about anything you
   can imagine.
   Sweet and Sour Cucumber Relish (Taeng Kwa Brio Wan)
   Toss the cucumber, onion and chili flakes together in
   a bowl. In a small saucepan, over low heat, dissolve
   the sugar in the water. Remove from heat and stir in
   the vinegar and salt. Pour this mixture over the
   veggies. Stir and refrigerate until served.

   This a is quick 'n' easy dish that’s refreshing--good
   for a barbecue on a hot summer day. Some of the
   sucessful variations that I've tried have been: Rice
   vinegar for white, add thinly sliced red or green hot
   chilis, use palm sugar instead of granulated.
