   In a deep bowl stir the vinegar, sugar, salt and white pepper until well
   blended.
   
   Peel onion, slice into lengthwise paper thin slices.  Same with seeded red
   chile pepper.
   
   Add the remaining ingredients, except the peanuts, and toss with the
   marinade.
   
   Serve at once or cover and chill NO LONGER than 2 hours.
   
   Top with the peanuts (whole or chopped) just before serving. Makes 1 cup
   
   * Personal Note - liked sliced cucumber much better.
   
   ~ÿ-ÿ-ÿ-ÿ------- Variations to try: thin slice onion and cucumber
   instead of julienne and increase vinegar to 2 tbls.
   
   If regular salted peanuts are used, omit salt in marinate.
