OMG I have been looking for this recipe for years. I tried it from the magazine long ago and it was amazing. The cucumbers definitely put it over the top. Over the years and after we moved i could not find the recipe or the magazine, i was bummed. i even went to the CL website to search for it with no luck. thank you, thank you i won't lose it this time.
