    Really enjoyed this dish! Like everyone else, it seems we had a bumper crop of cucumbers. A very nice alternative to cukes in salad. Will have again. Sorry it took so long to review, but life got in the way! Thnx for posting Barb.

    This was very easy to prepare. Because of personal preference I added 3 cloves garlic. It is one that I will make again. First time I have ever eaten fried cucumbers and was pleasantly surprised. Jim

    I made this and it was delicious. I had never fried-up cucumbers before, and the leeks that I had were a mystery. Good think I had watched the Food Network & knew how to clean them. I'll most certainly make it again. Thanks.
