Great taste! My friends loved this and I will make it again. I used 2 cucumbers and 3x the parsley!

Yummy and so fresh-tasting. Quite different from the version I usually make, but very good.

This was really good. I did not put the bread in the salad but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks Lisa
