This is fantastic! I unfortunately did not have any poppy seeds, so I look forward to next time to try with them - there will be a next time.

I chose this for a community picnic because it was different and not something creamy. I really liked it. It disappeared but I don't know what others thought of it. I will definitely take it to other gatherings. I did use regualar cucumbers and I drained a bit of the liquid before going to the picnic.
