I really enjoyed this dish. The texture was crisp and the flavours unusual but very nice.

Ellie- We absolutely loved the stir fry cucumber dish. We also love Mexican, so we added a pack of taco seasoning, and lots of garlic of course (omitted the mint)! It was served on flour wraps with sour cream and a little cheese. Now, my parents want the recipe (we had them over tonight for dinner). I was weary of the combination at first, but I had everything on hand, so I went for it. Thank you so much!!! (Tomorrow night, to use the rest of the cucumbers, I am making it again, and adding a little meat. Chicken, beef or shrimp...)

I was a little disappointed by this. The flavors blended together and then seemed to just melt away. It wasn't bad, but I don't think I would repeat the effort.
