What can I do with a huge glut of cucumbers? Other than cucumber soup?

Cucumber sandwiches. Pimms. Ermmmm ...

Nope, that's all I've got.

(I'd just eat loads though, love cucumber.)

With Pimms is the only way to eat cucumber.

Or Tzatziki!

Make a quick pickle with some?
Cold cucumber soup?

The whole salmon where you put cucumber she's on it?

Thanks everyone, am off to get some Greek yoghurt and make tzatziki. And some pimms! Have also managed to offload half onto the neighbours.

I de-seed, then add strips to a stir-fry.

I've grown some gherkins this year because ekasy year we couldn't eat the cucumbers fast enough. So 3 cucumber plants and already we can't eat them all (and we eat a LOT of cucumber!). I'm going to pickle some cucumbers as well.

Tzatziki is great, but we also do a chopped salad with cucumber, tomatoes, spring onion, herbs, avocado and oil. Double cucumber of course!

Grr. Tyoise and it's not clear.

#1. Last year. That should say.

#2. 3 plants instead of 6 and even that's too bloody many!

Grate cucumber, carrots and apples together, dress with olive oil and citrus juice, plus shredded mint leaves.

one of my favourites it the salad with cucmber tomato and redonion and a bit of mint sauce or lemon through it.

Big chunks of it with red onion tomato and feta for a Greek salad



I like it sliced in a G and T

And I like a dainty cucumber sandwich!

Thank you! Lots of ideas to try, I'm also getting through a huge glut of courgettes so trying to coordinate meals around them as well.
