Crazy for Cucumbers
You may think that cucumbers don’t serve many purposes. Maybe you slice them up for your tossed salad, chop up some spears and salt them for a snack or use them to make pickles. Quite honestly, other than the occasional cucumber sandwich, these were the extent of my cucumber use.
And then, like many times when I start to think a little too much about a subject, I had to research it. In my ignorance, I thought “Are there even such things as cucumber ‘recipes’?” Well, after hours of perusing Google and Pinterest, I’m here to tell you the answer is a resounding YES!
Typically, a cucumber is not a vegetable you cook, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be incredibly versatile. Check out some of these unique and tasty recipes using cukes (some of which I’ve tried and some of which are on my summer to-do list!)
