Default Cucumber Help!

I have ended up with six English cucumbers! Does anyone have any idea how I can use them up? Pickles?

You could try one of these salads:

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Tomato-...ad/Detail.aspx
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Korean-...ad/Detail.aspx

I'm also a big fan of homemade Tzatiki sauce, to use on wraps/sandwiches and stuff.

I know what to do with them but I have six of the suckers. I have a feeling they may end up as compost unless I eat two a day.

Slice in half long-ways, scoop out seeds with a spoon. Take cottage cheese and fresh herbs (dill, basil, cilantro, whatever!) and mix together. Spoon down the center of each half and it's a snack?

at Schmoo. Nope! I did Good Food Box today and ended up mis-managing trades. I might end up making freezer pickles out of these monsters. I did eat half of one with lunch.

Ruthie, haul out your dehydrator and make cucumber chips with them. They're wonderful sprinkled with a little olive oil and garlic powder before you dry them, and they're also pretty good with chili powder and garlic. Enjoy! (Burrrrrrrrrp! )

Oh my! What a great idea! I'll try not to slice off my finger on the mandolin this time. I have dried dill and some sea salt and will try different flavours.
