Cucumbers are one of my favorite vegetables, and they are so delicious in the height of summer, especially when they are homegrown. Here is one of my beautiful cucumbers from my rather sad looking plant.
What Can I do with Lots of Cucumbers?
Every summer, many people end up asking this question, so in response, there are soups, appetizers, sandwiches, side dishes, pickles and even cocktails that can be made using cucumbers. Cucumbers are so refreshing, so try one or more of these recipes the next time you are overloaded, or even if you just have a few to use!
Ways to Use Cucumbers
- Refrigerate slices and use cucumbers to cool and refresh tired eyes.
- Pop some slices into a jug of water, with or without lemon slices, to make a hydrating “spa-style” water.
- Add to smoothies.
- And of course, use them in the recipes listed below.
You don’t need any special tools for most of these recipes, but an inexpensive slicer like this OXO hand-held mandoline slicer makes life a bit easier.
