But cucumber has some weakness. Actually eating too much cucumber is not good for the girls, because it cause vaginal discharge if consumed in excessive amounts. So consume this wisely as needed.

      Love cukes, Prasetio - I do a neat dip with them that is so light and airy! Made with Greek Yogurt and shredded baby cukes. Yum - you made me think to make it tonight. Congrats again on the 100!

      With all these wonderful uses for cucumbers, pras, the price is sure to go up in our local markets. Had no idea they were such amazing vegetables. I have more respect for them now. :)
