My family liked this, and it was a great way to serve cucumbers without adding sugar. I *did* get the suspicious question "were cucumbers on sale?", but I swear it wasn't a complaint . I followed the recipe exactly. I even toasted the sesame seeds - well worth it.

This is delicious! Tastes very similar to the cucumbers at P.F. Changs!!!
