“From my high school home economics book, I'd never heard of using cucumber in a cooked dish and my garden is going crazy at the moment with them so thought I'd give it a go. I think it's supposed to be a side dish but I think it's better as a sauce, I used it on top of some broccoli but I think it would be great with corned beef.”
