Stay Cool: Cucumber Tips and Tricks

This low-maintenance vegetable is high in nutrition and adaptability. Here are a few unique ways to bring cucumber to your menu that doesn’t involve pickling.

  • Serving rich food? Try bringing cucumber to the plate as a palate cleanser! Paired with light mint or fennel, cucumber can be a delight on pork belly!
  • Want to have cucumber as the main event? Using an overnight asian-influenced marinade (think soy sauce and sesame oil to start), brings out a delectably strong flavor.
  • Looking for something cold to fill out those warm months? Make a gazpacho! Cucumber’s light, refreshing flavor makes it a great base in the cold soup, allowing you freedom to get creative.
