After tasting it directly in the bowl I added grated monterey cheese to add some taste. It was great that way. It added more flavor. But next time I'll add a bit of tabasco to add some spicyness. It could be great. Thanks weekend cooker :) Made for Almost 5 tag game
I did "spice" mine up a bit (added Louisiana hot sauce) because I felt it was a bit bland. I am wondering though if perhaps a bit of dill in it instead would have done the trick. I did not have any dill on hand to try. Thanks for a nice change for my cucumbers.
I made these as per the instructions but felt that the flavour wasn't there. I added a bit (2 tsp) of light mayo and 2 tsp of lemon juice, but still the flavour was not really there. Be careful when adding the salt as a pinch in these will go a long way. Made for PRMR
