Cucumber Salad: Cooking Up Your Farmer’s Share Bag

Cucumber salad is a quick and easy way to use all of those cucumbers that are in your garden or share bag.

It came to my mind as I noticed pleas for help on social media:

“Help! What do I do with all of these cucumbers?!”

Refrigerator pickles are another great way to use cucumbers (recipe here).

Another recipe I must say that I’ve been enjoying is the craft cocktail, Cucumber-Lime Cooler (recipe here).

The recipe calls for pear-infused vodka, but since I had citrus flavored at home, I used it with great results!

Some people don’t care for pickles, or cocktails, though.

This cucumber salad has a fresh taste and nice crunch.  It’s a got enough spice to make it interesting, but kids still like it (though they might skip the onions!).
