   Arrange cucumbers in center, dividing evenly. Garnish with chives. Serve.
   NOTE: Seasoned rice vinegar, available in the Oriental section of most
   super- markets, is a blend of mild rice vinegar with a perfect balance of
   sugar, salt and water. If you are using rice vinegar, adjust the salt,
   sugar and water to taste.
