    A lot of steps but certainly worth the effort for a special dinner. I believe the recipe originally came from BonAppetit. Prep time does not include draining the cucumbers.

      I've been looking for this recipe for more than six years. A bad moving day made it disappear. It's light and delicious yet still a very rich dish.
