Comments

This recipe was the surprise hit of our cooking workshops last summer.  Most people thought it was a strange combo, but ended up loving it, myself included. 

I was so surprised by this combination, I couldn't stop eating it and will be making it over and over!

This is amazingly good. I had no idea that grapes and cucumber went so well together!
