    Meant to give this 5 stars, but the mouse mis-clicked. Love this recipe! Tastes just like what I use to eat when I lived in Europe.

      The only thing that can be causing it to be bitter are the cucumbers. If the cucumbers have large seeds, they can be bitter. Try using English cucumbers. They have very few seeds and the peel is soft.The peel of regular cucumbers is also bitter. hope this helps!
