Rice Noodles with Cilantro, Mint and Peanuts

1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 tbl sugar
1/2 medium sweet onion (Vidalia or purple)
8 oz firm dried rice noodles
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp dried crushed red pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced
4 green onions thinly sliced
3 plum tomatoes seeded and chopped
2 tbl lightly salted cocktail peanuts slightly crushed

Whisk vinegar and sugar in medium bowl to blend. Add onion rings
and toss to coat. Cover and let stand at least 30 minutes and up
to 4 hrs. Drain, reserving 2 tbl of vinegar mixture. Cook noodles
in boiling water about 2 minutes until al dente. Drain and rinse
under cold water. Drain well.

Whisk lime juice, oil and crushed pepper in small bowl to blend.
Stir in mint and cilantro. Cut noodles into 3-4 inch sections.
Place 1/4 of the noodles into the bowl with the reserved vinegar
mixture. Toss remaining noodles with the lime juice mixture. Mix
noodles together with all remaining ingredients except peanuts.
Sprinkle nuts over the top and serve immediately. This is also
great with diced turkey for a non-meatless entree.
