We have lots of cucumbers and squash coming on.
But, what do you do with so many cucumbers?
I don't make pickles, but we slice them and put them in a bowl of cold water and vinegar and set them on the table at supper time.
We make cucumber sandwiches with them. When my tomatoes finally get ripe, we will have tomato, cucumber and mayo sandwiches....yum!
Here are a couple of cucumber recipes:
4 cucumbers peeled and sliced then 2 bunches of green onions (chopped)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1/2 tsp. salt
Pour over cucumbers and onions
This is very good and I could just eat and eat it.
But, I have to admit that I leave out the green onions and I use Miracle Whip.
Here is another one. I have never tried this one before, but it is one of my cousin's recipes and is in our family cookbook.
INDIAN CUCUMBER SALAD
3 medium cucumbers
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 t ground cumin
1 t dried mint leaves
Peel cucumber. Cut in half lengthwise and discard seeds. Slice thinly.
Mix the remaining ingredients together; add cucumbers and toss well.
And, what do you do with all your squash or zucchini?
We have made squash casserole, fried squash and squash cakes.
You can go here for my recipe for squash bread. It is delicious! You can use either yellow squash or zucchini.
Enjoy your veggies while you have them. Take those zucchini, leave them on your neighbors porch, ring their doorbell and run! And maybe leave my recipe for squash bread, they'll appreciate it.
