From Real Thai by Nancy McDermott. It is often served with satay but also
is a great accompaniment for dishes like the Thai Basil Chicken. The small
"pickling" cucumbers are the best to use.

Combine the vinegar, water, sugar and salt in a small saucepan over medium
heat. Bring to a gentle boil stirring to dissolve sugar and salt. Remove
from heat and cool to room temperature.

Just before serving time, peel the cucumbers. (Make cuts or "score" the
cucumber length-wise all around if you want to make this look a little more
decorative.) Slice as you normally would slice cucumbers for a salad.
Combine the cucumber slices with the vinegar dressing, shallots, and chiles
in a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the peanuts and garnish with the cilantro
