Stay Cool as a Cucumber

July 26, 2011

Cucumbers are mostly water which makes them an ideal summer ingredient. Go beyond the usual chopped cuke salads with these delightful seasonal recipes.

Take your cukes on an exotic journey with this deeply flavorful salad.

Zukes and cukes make the perfect low-carb summer "pasta".

A classic Greek yogurt and cuke sauce that can be used as a dip spread, or side dish.

Radish and onion give this cold summer soup some kick.

Cantaloupe and cuke make this a unique popsicle experience

Love cucumbers! And not only are they great in all those refreshing summer dishes but they can help boost your energy and prevent that post backyard party hangover
