    Mirj's Note:

    My friend Liza, who works for my parent company, just emailed me this recipe. Liza likes to surf Zaar for recipes, but hasn't joined as a member yet. She's letting me post her recipe (which sounds really yummy). Hopefully, she'll post some of her own soon!

      This is really yummy! I used Lisa's suggestion for more cukes and I'm glad I did. It would have been bland and tasteless without the additional cucumber. I used tetra chicken stock, one medium yellow and one medium red onion to give a bit of colour. Served it hot, but ate leftovers cold. It's yummy chilled as well!
