I put the cukes in the fridge last night to marinate and then for an early dinner I made these to go with your Sea Scallop recipe#194943...everyone loved the meal. I followed the directions exactly and will follow it again. Thank you for submitting your recipe. Made in memory of NoraMarie's husband Ed.
