Default Does anyone have an idea to spruce up cucumbers?

I have a cucumber sitting on my desk and wondering if there is anything else I can do besides slice it up and eat it lol

Not sure if this is "spruced up" enough for you- I like to slice them, pour homemade dill vinagrette over them, and liberally salt. I eat this almost every day, it is one of my favorite veggies!

I am sure someone more creative than me will come along with a much better idea

Those look amazing. What do you use to cut your cucumbers like that? I am tired of just olive oil and salt.

Wuv I was going to say the same thing! I use a Julienne slicer (looks like a peeler but has slots in the blade for making julienne strips of veggies), and make cuke noodles - I saute them for a minute or two in EVOO, a splash of Bragg's aminos, minced garlic and grated ginger. I take some baked chicken breasts and dress them in Walden Farms Asian dressing and serve on top of the "noodles" - it's a great Chinese take-out style dish!

You can do zuchinni with it as well....I have mixed cukes and zuchinni together to make a salad. Also, used zuchinni noodles with the WF tomato basil for a spaghatti

Thanks for that, Wuv! I was just at our local Sunflower Market (which is transitioning to a Sprouts) and they actually have some WF dressings, etc. First place in town for it. I was so glad. I'll pick up some of that tomato basil. I want to make Liz's roasted red bell pepper sauce also.

Again, can't wait.
