Cucumber is the base of this dressing; it provides a mellow grassy flavor and a luxurious texture. It may be refrigerated for up to 3 days. They recommend serving it atop a salad of mixed greens, radishes, scallions and hard-boiled eggs. Recipe from Eating Well. NOTE after making dish: Mine turned out VERY thick and so I thinned it with some water and vinegar, but then it needed more seasoning (garlic worked well). So don't be afraid to play around with this recipe a little, as it truly is a good springboard for a dressing. It is fresh tasting and beautiful in color.
