Oooh! Wendyjo, cukes are heavenly!
I cube one up in a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and add a little Lawry's seasoning salt (I personally think God sent this seasoning down for my family's enjoyment. It is soooo good and I put it in nearly everything!) for breakfast.
Make a big batch of tzatziki: plain yogurt, diced cukes, a clove or two of garlic, pressed in a garlic press, some chopped mint, and Lawry's seasoning salt, mixed together. You can put this on chicken in a pita with veggies for an awesome sandwich or make pita crisps (cut a pita into 8 triangles, brush each with olive oil and press a couple cloves of garlic over them, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in 425 degree oven until golden and crispy. Dip them in the Tzatziki. Yum!
There are several recipes in Cooking Light that use cucumber. We made a Chicken and Couscous salad from the magazine last week that had cucumber and radishes. It was really good! www.cookinglight.com
has most, if not all, of their recipes.
I'm not sure what the recipe would look like if we SBD'ed it, but we have a great recipe from my DH's grandmother for cucumber salad. I bet you could make a good version of this. There are bound to be some recipes using cucumber on www.allrecipes.com
, but you may have to make them OP.
And if all else fails, start a spa in your garden and slice the cukes to put on your client's eyes!
I envy you...I know I'm going to be spending a fortune in cukes this summer!
