Can I use white vinegar instead of rice vinegar?
Just put together ingredients for dinner using a recipe from what I believe was "Cooking Light". Since I borrowed the magazine and have since given it back AND have already gone to the store today, I need to substitute the rice vinegar in the Chicken, ginger and snow peas stir-fry.

I guess my eye caught just the word vinegar as I copied it down. I have all kinds of vinegar except rice..Any thoughts?
Thanks

1. I always use this site
when I need to find a substitute: http://www.foodsubs.com

I typed in "rice vinegar" and here is what I found:

rice vinegar = rice wine vinegar Notes: Rice vinegars are popular in Asian and they're sweeter, milder, and less acidic than Western vinegars. They're sometimes called "rice wine vinegars," but they're made from rice, not rice wine. Most recipes that call for rice vinegar intend for you to use white rice vinegar, which is used in both China and Japan. The Chinese also use red rice vinegar with seafood or in sweet and sour dishes, and black rice vinegar in stir-fries and dipping sauces. Substitutes: apple cider vinegar (also add a pinch of sugar if you like) OR white wine vinegar OR 3 parts white vinegar + 1 part water
