butter-flavored refrigerated cooking spray
1 tablespoon (15 ml) minced fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon (5 ml) crushed dried
freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Salt the peeled and seeded cucumber and allow to drain for 10 minutes. Place under cold water to wash off the salt. Wipe with tea towel or paper towel. Slice into thin slices.
