Place your cucumber chunks into your food processor and puree til chunky/smooth texture. Pour into a large bowl.
Olive oil spray a frying pan, sauté your onion and garlic for 5 minutes, over medium high heat. Now add the onion/garlic to the cucumber bowl, along with Mrs. Dash, pepper to taste, mix well.
Cover and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
You can also add the cucumbers to the frying pan once you sautéed your onions/garlic. Slowly pour cucumbers into pan, add Mrs. Dash while stirring and pepper to taste. Turn burner to low, and let simmer for 40 minutes, stir often. Serve warm with a dollop of lite sour cream, delicious!!
