    Altered ingredient amounts. I usually add cumin to this recipe to give it a little lift. Also to make a thicker sauce to have with wraps etc don't blend it just mix it all together. - 07 Oct 2010


    Something else. I did seed the cucumber, which appears to have eliminated the "runny" problem that another person described. All in all, I enjoyed this dressing very much. It's a great, lite summer dressing. - 08 Oct 2008


    Runny but tasty, and a bit bland. Needs dill or cayenne or something sprightly. A little anchovy paste would make it Ceasaresque. Fresh savory would be good too. A lot of the runnyness is from *over* blending - resist the temptation to hit the liquify button, otherwise you have liquid cucumbers! 'Sweat' the cucumbers - peel, slice in half lengthways, core and cut halves into crescents. Toss with a little salt and let pieces sweat in a collander for a minimum 1 hr. Shake off the sweat (do not rinse, it's not salty any more) and queeze out whatever more water you can. Blend this and it will not be runny. - 08 Oct 2008
