The ingredients and method in this dish made the cucumbers taste excellent, making for a great side dish. I didn't wind up using mushrooms due to no availability at the market, but I can see how tasty they would be here. Who would have thought that warm cukes would taste this good! Thank you Teresa for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.
