What is the easiest/best way to identify what TABLES are used as Sources for a SSAS CUBE?

I'm seeking to find a way to list-out the TableName(s) that a SSAS Cube sources its data from.

Thanks

-- You can do it via a MDX query like:

SELECT  *
 FROM  $SYSTEM.MDSCHEMA_DIMENSIONS
 WHERE  [CUBE_NAME]='TEST CUBE'
