    LeeDelaino's Note:

    I put this together one night when I needed a nice cool side dish. I think there's lot of room for variations (like adding a dash of hot) but here's the basic recipe.

      This is delicious and delicate, a wonderful salad. I had two problems -- I didn't have any fresh basil available, so just omitted it. Then, I'm not the world's best prep cook, and apparently not able to slice onions as thinly as they ought to be for this recipe. ;-) Therefore, frustrated with my thick onion slices, I threw the onions in the food processor to chop. I mixed the chopped purple onion with the thinly sliced English cucumber (that one I was able to do) and tossed it with the marinade ingredients. I liked it even better a few hours later, after it turned into a lightly pickled salad. I will try this again later this summer, when I have fresh basil growing in my garden. Thanks, grrlee!
