My favorite recipes with cucumbers

I grow cucumbers in my garden each year, and each year when I have too many sitting on my kitchen table during the peak of the season, I start to try and remember what I made with them the year before. Well, this year, I'm taking a different tactic, I'm actually going to write them down.

So here goes, my easy garden fresh cucumber recipes, which includes an appetizer, two salads, and how I eat them raw.

I hope to add some new recipes each season, so come back each year to see my new recipes and appetizers.

Cucumber Sandwiches

My wife makes this all the time, I think it may have been modified from a Weight Watchers recipe. The nice thing about this recipe is even the kids can make it for a snack.

  • Cook time: 5 min
  • Ready in: 15 min

Ingredients

  • 8 oz package Dry Italian Dressing Mix

  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 cucumber

Instructions

  1. Step 1 - Mix the Italian dressing mix and the cream cheese together.
  2. Step 2 - Spread a thin layer on one tortilla.
  3. Step 3 - Cut the tortilla into 8 triangular pieces (like a pizza)
  4. Step 4 - Slice the cucumber and cut into halves. Place each half onto one of the triangular tortilllas.
  5. Step 5 - Serve. Or chill for for later in the refrigerator.
