Cucumber Vinaigrette

Have you tasted Japanese pickled cucumbers?  Or, cucumber and onion salad?  This tastes a lot like that - delicious, fresh cucumbers flavored with onion, vinegar, and sugar.  Yum!
This recipe is adapted from one found in Sam Choy's Island Flavors cookbook.  It is a great dressing for cabbage, bok choy, or lettuce.  Sam Choy serves it with sushi.  However you serve it, it's great.  Refreshing and summery, light and flavorful.  Yum!

2.  Stir the vinaigrette.  Serve!
