mmm, that cucumber watermelon salad sounds awesome!

We just ordered 30lbs of bulk cucumbers from our CSA, so I can throw a few ideas out there. I think most people in our CSA get the bulk cucumbers to pickle them, but our favorite thing is making a simple cucumber salad... just peel and thinly slice (we use the slicing thing on the cheese grater) cucumbers, add some thinly sliced red onion and some vinegar and salt to taste. It's so simple and tastes pretty amazing....amazing enough that we buy 30 lbs of cucumbers so that we can make tons of it

I also made some tzatziki as someone else suggested. It's great for dipping veggies or using as a spread.

My mom recommended a summery cucumber tomato salad that you could try. You just cut up some tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, and add some olive oil, vinegar, salt and mint leaves. I haven't tried it, but it's on my list.
