What do you do when you have so many cucumbers that you don’t know what to do with them? When your bountiful garden just keeps giving you more and more..
Well you could pickle them…which is amazing…and I’ll share with you a super simple way to ferment those cukes, that locks in all the taste and makes them a probiotic powerhouse!
You could do what my dog Sky would do…
She would go into the garden, find the biggest one in there and then hold it between her front paws and happily munch away until it was just a memory! Our neighbours used to laugh and laugh at our precious vegetarian puppy! I
I was so proud!
You could make the most amazing smoothies!
You could make cucumber mint water!
You could do a spa day and put cucumbers on your eyes…but that really only uses two slices…
You could make this absolutely delicious cucumber salad! It is fabulous on so many levels! It is simple, filling, could be a side salad or a main course…
I would love to know what you think of this one…it is a family favourite and I hope it becomes one of your favourites too 🙂
