Light, fresh French side dish I make frequently. Everyone asks what is this and how do you make it. Be careful not to brown your cucumbers. They should be translucent, not browned.

Very good! I cut the recipe back and used a seedless cucumber so I didn't need to de-seed it. Nice side dish that is definitely different from the usual. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
