I used this recipe last weekend but I didn't do the spears. I cut the cucumbers into slices.Except for the ones that were to big to slice so those I skinned and cut out the seeds and chunked up. We haven't tried them yet but it was so easy to do . And didn't take me 2 weeks like some other recipes.
