My cousin plants a garden every year and every year without fail she is left with an abundance of…something! This year…CUCUMBERS! “What am I going to do with all of these cucumbers?” Like any good cousin, I started researching what she could do with these things…and I found several ways to use up a perfectly good cucumber…or more like cucumberS!
Of course, there is pickling!
My ultimate favorite thing in the world…
Few people know you can also cook cucumbers!
There are an array of salads that can be made with cucumbers…here is a great site that gives tons of healthy ideas!
Stuffed!!! Let’s face it…anything stuffed with well…stuff is amazing!
Here is a great site with tons of stuff to stuff the stuffing out of a cucumber! (Say that three times!)
And then to wash to wash all that down make a refreshing cucumber drink…watermelon is a great pair with cucumbers (be light on the cucumber though, it has a very strong test!) and if you need a nice adult beverage after all of those creations…feel free to add your favorite spirit!
If my cousin doesn’t appreciate the cucumber after all of this, she may not want to plant so many cucumbers next year! But, I think after trying some of these delicious uses, she may plant even more!
