Acar (indonesian garden salad)

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Water; cold
½ cup White vinegar
1 slice Ginger root; crushed
3½ tablespoon Sugar
3 teaspoons Salt
1 \N Yellow onion; thinly sliced
5 cups Cabbage; thinly sliced
1 cup Carrot; finely shredded
2 cups Cucumber; thinly sliced

In salad bowl combine first five ingredients. Add vegetables. Toss thoroughly and refrigerate at least one hour.
