      Tastes great! I had extra pickling cucumbers and no large ones, so I wasn't sure how close I was to the amount of sliced cucumbers.I don't think I used enough cucumbers of them as preparation time was getting long. I didn't use 1 tsp. of dill because I was almost out and I just used about 1/16 tsp. of cayenne, hoping my children would enjoy this dish. They didn't, but I sure did! thanks for the great way to use some of my plenteous cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden!
