"Very good and easy to make. I made as directed except that I added some pepper to the mixture and we all enjoyed it. Next time I think I would use light cream but again this is very good as written."

"I made this recipe for Book Club and there wasn't a drop left and everyone wanted the recipe. I was so proud because the cukes were from my garden."

"I am not a fan of plain cucumbers but really liked this recipe. I will definitely make it again. It was a tasty change and fun to serve guests at a summer barbeque."
