Thai Cucumber Salad

Spicy yet Cool and Fresh
So nice on a hot sticky summer day in Thailand... or SF

I have no idea where I got this recipe.
Yields 4

4 T sugar
2 T rice wine vinegar
1/2 t salt
4 T water
Red Pepper flakes to taste
2 cups cucumbers, peeled, seeded sliced 
1/4 cup red onion
1/4 cup fresh mint roughly chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro roughly chopped

Combine the sugar, vinegar, salt, pepper and water in a small sauce pan over high heat.
Stir until sugar is dissolved 
Let it come to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes
Let cool
In the meantime, prepare your cucumber, onion, mint and cilantro in a medium bowl
Pour the vinegar mixture over your vegetable mixture and toss to coat
