Anyone who knows me knows I hate cucumbers. You will rarely find a recipe of mine that includes it. I won’t even try to make something with cucumbers. So how did this come about? My friends and I had a ladies luncheon and one of the ladies brought a cucumber. So while we were waiting for our lunch to be made, they snacked on this. I obviously did not try it, but my friends loved it.
