    kiwidutch's Note:

    Who's have thought about sauteed Cucumber? Try this for something different, elegant and tasty. Borrowed and adapted from a book called "Salads and Summer Dishes".Note: Now that I have been making this a while I thought I'd pass some tips... using dried rosemary results in less flavour, fresh gives more, but it's a bit of a "tough"herb, so I put it in with the onion and slow and *gently* saute them both. when adding the sour cream, be careful because if the mix is too hot it will split a little and presentation will be less, but even if it splits, don't worry the favour of the infused rosmary in the sour cream is wonderful... I even used my fingers to get the last of it onto the cucumber! And the cuccumber itself? Wow I am very pleasently surprised, I hope that you try this and share a whole new delicious way of eating cuccumber. ZWT REGION: France.

      What a unique way to serve cucumber! As odd as it may seem, I have never had warm cucumbers before. They were delicously tender and the shallots provided a nice, rich flavor. I used reduced fat sour cream, light butter, and Splenda instead of the sugar with great results. I also used 2 medium sized cucumbers and the balance of veggie and sauce was just right. Thanks for posting!
