If cucumbers are as plentiful in your house as they are in mine (thanks to my productive garden), then you’re looking for ways to use up these crunchy, nutritious gems.
I’d had enough pickles, and wanted to use up several of my large ones. I’d been craving tuna salad lately so I used cucumbers as the base. This is a great, low carbohydrate, veggie-packed lunch.
Preparation is simple. Make your favorite tuna salad recipe. Take a cumber (or 2 or 3 or 4!), peel it, and scoop the seeds out (this creates a little boat for your tuna salad to sit in).
Layer diced tomatoes (also plentiful this time of year), tuna salad and more tomatoes.
You can pick up the boats and dig in, or if you would like to be a bit more dainty, you can use a knife and fork!
What’s your favorite way to use cucumbers?
