Yummy! I have had this recipe saved for some time and have finally gotten the chance to make it...kinda wish I hadn't waited so long! I had about 1/3 very large cuke to use up; I halved everything else and it was perfect. Used green onion instead of chives as they were what I had. Thanks for sharing Andi!
