Cucumbers everywhere!! Recipes?
 
Anybody have any tried and true cucumber recipes? I've ended up with quite a few from my garden, and have suddenly taken an aversion to eating them plain with ranch so they're just sitting around except when I throw them in salads.

I generally cube and toss with vinegar, salt and pepper. I also like them sliced with yogurt and dill. I haven't made it recently, but you can also make Tzatziki dip with shredded ones.

Slice up, add a dash of apple cider vinegar, a tsp of sugar, dill to taste, and ranch and Italian dressing in equal parts. I also add bacon bits and broccoli.

Let sit for a few hours before serving.

wish we were closer to one another and I would take some off your hands!::drif:

I ended up with a TON of cucumbers from the CSA a few weeks ago and wasn't sure what to do with them. Someone suggested making pickles, so I decided to learn how to do just that! I can't tell you how they turned out, because I have to wait 8 weeks to try them, but I can say that I'm pretty darn proud of myself. It was a LOT easier than I thought it would be, and that's for someone who had NEVER canned anything before!

I've actually had cucumbers in a stir fry and it was pretty tasty!

My fave way to eat them is tossed in rice wine vinegar with roaster beets, red onion and feta. You could also do Greek salads or add them to sandwiches. Use them to top turkey burgers.
