You made me look. I just have rice vinegar. I probably bought it specifically for a recipe, but now I'm wondering if it was supposed to be rice wine vinegar...

I'm definitely going to the Asian grocery store tomorrow and see what they have. I can't remember ever seeing rice wine vinegar, but I'm not sure I was looking for it.

RB, rice vinegar works fine for the recipes I've used it in.

Rice vinegar and rice wine vinegar are the same thing.

When I get sesame noodles from the the Chinese restaurant, they julienne cukes and put them in there. I do the same when I've made it in the past.

Also, with those wasabi mayo cups, you can probably substitute hummus, and it would be really good too.

Ive also been at parties where they serve gazpacho out of cucumber cups as well.

I've used cucumber "cups" as the delivery device for crab salad, chicken salad, salsa, cold cucumber soup.

I'm going to try that with the Dragon Lady's Sesame noodles the next time. Thanks Larry.

That Cucumber Salsa looks like a winner from Bon Appetit.

This recipe from them also sounds interesting and unusual.

MIL likes slices of them instead of bread/chips for dipping into hummus or tepanade.

I posted this as a pickle recipe. But it is a great way to use those "oops, missed that cucumber" cukes (the ones that are oversized).
