I thought it was really good. It was time consuming pitting the cucumbers but ultimately worth it. Read More

Excellent and refreshing. Sautéing the onion first and then the cucumbers then adding the dill before cooling and pureeing gives time for the flavors to marry. The cream's richness brings it all together. Read More
