What a lovely, light, summery dish! Just what I need right now, as I've gained a little weight as of late... :-) I've never had an Armenian cucumber, will see if I can spy one in our local markets.

Particularly with hot weather, a salad is just what the body needs, Frank :) I have started seeing Armenian cucumbers at the farmers' market in recent years and given their shape and color they are hard to ignore. They are also excellent, so I hope you'll find them in your area.

This dish sounds and looks so delicious and refreshing. Interesting book and another fabulous review.
