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.
