    This looks delicious! I’m always wondering what to do with cucumbers, besides tossing them in salad and serving on sandwiches.

    This sounds great. I love a cold salad when I have spicy meal. It just helps it balance out.

  10. I don’t know how I missed this one! I would love to try it out. Right now is probably not the best time to make it as we now have to buy our veggies. So I sam going to bookmark this for this summer. I just might sneek out and get the veggies any way and try it. It looks and sounds so good. Thanks for sharing.
