    Chef Dudo's Note:

    This recipe is from a cookbook called The Silver Spoon. It was recently translated into English and is supposed to be the most used cookbook in Italy. I have enjoyed browsing through this book and have already made several recipes. Thought I'd share.

      A nice way of serving cucumbers. The olives taste great with the cucumbers. I also added a couple tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese, and enjoyed it overall.

      What a great dish! We've tried many cucumber salads but never one with black olives in it.....we LOVED it. I served this in a black serving dish and it made for a beautiful presentation. Thanks for sharing this unique and very tasty dish, Chef Dudo!!!
