Into every gardener’s life, a little veggie excess must fall. This year we are positively swimming in cucumbers. (This isn’t a bad problem to have honestly. I love cucumbers.) If you are swimming in cucumbers too, may I suggest a few recipes that will use them up quickly and tastily?
Lemon Cucumber Tofu Salad from the 101 Cookbooks. Heidi Swanson has never steered me wrong. She uses Lemon Cucumbers, but I don’t grow those, so I used 1 1/2 of the big, long cucumbers from my garden. This salad was awesome – definitely a meal in and of itself.
Greek Antipasto Pitas from Cheap Healthy Good. I didn’t have a red pepper, so I just did another 1/2 cucumber instead. Quite yummy and equally good (if not better) the next day. Bonus points for requiring no heat at all, which is critical this summer.
And of course, I have been using cucumbers in sandwiches – tuna salad, egg salad, and hummus. I still have plenty more in the fridge. Have any cucumber recipe suggestions? What is your garden swimming in?
