    My husband is Croatian from Varazdin and we had good harvest of cucumbers in our garden this year. He suggested cooking them and I was very sceptical as I have never eaten a cooked cucumber in my life. Tried this dish and it was delicious, my kids loved it! I forgot to add the sour cream which I will do next time, can imagine it will taste even better. Thanks for the recipe!
