Switching it up

How about a linkfest where you supply all the links, instead of me?

See, here’s the thing: certain parts of our garden have been very productive. Like the cucumber plant.


Washed and ready, waiting around with the other produce (farmer's market patty pans and potatoes, grocery store onion and sweet potato). The other home-grown produce is sitting in the background - our patty pans are just too big for the basket (they might squish the others!), and I don't want the tomato to overripen, or affect the other veggies somehow. As a bonus note, we used one patty pan (a small yellow one) already, and I actually cut up (blegh!) and put one of the tomatoes in a recipe for dinner.

And, well, I need something to do with all those cucumbers.

We used one already, gave one away, and there’s one sitting in the fridge (waiting to be used for – who knows what, but it’s ready!).


Lovely shade of green, don't you think?

I have a few recipes favorited in my iPhone apps, but I’m looking for more options.

What would you make with them? They’re not pickling cucumbers, at least not in the traditional sense. They’re rather large, and perfect in every way. (Really, no exterior blemishes, even the ones that were found on the ground.)


See? Perfect!

So… comment away! What would you make?


Eat me!

    I have a cucumber recipe but I feel like I’d be the only person on the planet to like it because it involves lime juice, salt, cilantro, and scallions. Lots of lime juice.
