    Aroostook's Note:

    This dish is unusual but a great hit with my crew. The cukes give this dish a nice texture.

      I love cucumbers and am thrilled to have a new recipe to use them -- it will come in handy when the garden yields come in. My only change was to add one minced red chili, and therefore reduced the pepper flakes to just a sprinkle.

      Incredible. I used peanut oil instead of canola, added 1/2 a cup of peanuts, and instead of red pepper flakes, used 2 tsp of thai fire sauce. Wonderful. Never thought of using cukes in stir fry, but now I will. Oh, ,I used equal parts chicken and pork too. yummy. This would almost be good if you cooked the meat, then just added it to the remaining ingredients and chilled like a salad.

      A very nice recipe to use when you are over-run with cucumbers (like I was this summer!). The cucumbers remind me of water chestnuts.
