I've found this recipe in a local food magazine, "Food & Home". I liked the look of it, but tweaked the flavours just a little. Ideal for dieters and low-carbers, and it looks so pretty on a plate! I doubt that the tiny amount of sugar, most of which is discarded again, will spoil a diet! NB, March 9, 2009: justcallmetoni found the cucumber dressing still too sweet, so I reduced the sugar. Please taste it, and add more lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, if you like.
