If you’re looking for several ways to use the abundance of cucumbers that recently burst forth in your garden or arrived fresh from a farm in your produce box, I’ve got some quick and easy recipes for you.
Let’s start with this Carrot and Cucumber Salad. You could eat the carrots and cucumbers raw, as you might expect, but instead I cooked them, Asian style, for just a few minutes. Add salt, fresh mint, cilantro, and lime—and voila—culinary delight! Not only are the cucumbers delicious when cooked, but they are also easier to digest.
