    Diann is Cooking's Note:

    Years ago I found this recipe, but when i went back to the original source recently, I discovered I'd changed it significantly. It's cool and refreshing, but with a bit of heat, as you choose. I eat this as a side or as an appetizer. I'm not specifying servings because this will depend upon use.

      Very very good! A friend and I dipped pita chips into this like a dip! Very good! I love the spicy from the cayenne! I garnished with a teeny bit of mint! Thanks for posting! Made for Veg'N Swap 37!

      Made this with just 1 teaspoon of cumin & 1/4 teaspoon of the cayenne, & that worked out just fine! It made a very nice tasting dip for raw vegetables & oven fries! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I used organic cucumber from our CSA box and this was easy to throw together. Went well with tacos. I skipped the cayenne only because I had made salsa to accompany the tacos. The cayenne would have added much needed color as there isn't much more than lots of pale green happening. Reviewed for Veg Tag/May.
