4 stars because I changed it. I used cider vinegar instead of balsamic and LOVED it!.
Not very appetizing at all for me. For all of the strong flavors in it -- the onion, the tuna, and the cheddar, it was almost bland. The sweet relish and the lemon juice stood out in a bad way, and I was left with a fishy/canned aftertaste that ruined the garden-fresh cucumbers I had. I also had a big issue with the texture, the cucumber had so much crunch but since I couldn't taste it over the filling, it seemed to me like I was eating extra crunchy tuna salad. It threw the whole dish off. It is a quick and easy dish, which I am sure some people will like, but I am not one of them.
Very good! It was very dry however, so I had to add water to it during the second knead cycle. It also kind of collapsed during baking, so the end result was not very pretty but it more than made up for its looks with its taste.
Who ever thought a cucumber dish could have you running for a glass of milk! VERY spicy, could easily halve the spices and still get a good kick from this. My father and I mixed this soup into some leftover white rice and this created an excellent dish.
I ended up using white rice since that is what we had on hand. This had a very nice texture, but a similar taste to a normal white bread. I plan to try this with the brown rice to see if it is better.
Just like what I remembered from when I was little. A couple tips 1) Using a plastic bag can get very messy, you might want to use a tupperware. 2) Store this in the refrigerator and serve cold. It tastes a lot better that way.
I didn't have enough cottage cheese so I ended up having to substitute 1/2 cup yogurt. They ended up pretty sweet but that might be because of my changes. Will try again.
I think this is more like 3.5 stars as is. A very simple yet tasty recipe. On the second attempt I used seasoned breadcrumbs and added 1/2 cup parmesean cheese, this helps quite a bit.
They were a little on the dry side and I couldn't taste the zucchini -- only bacon and cheddar.
