I think cucumbers are one of the top 5 quintessential summer vegetables. They are easy to grow, and are a garden staple from coast to coast. I personally have several cucumber plants growing this year, but no actual cucumbers….yet. I’m pretty sure in about a month I’m going to have more cucumbers than I know what to do with. (Pickles anyone?)
For this light and refreshing cucumber salad I was forced to purchase a cucumber from the grocery store, but it was worth it. I’m totally detoxing after consecutive weekends in Chicago and New York, so vegetables are just what I need right now. Plus, its kind of hot in San Diego these days so this was a nice cool treat for lunch.

I’m hoping to post a garden update sooner than later, but in the meantime I’m interested to hear what other people are growing this year. Raise your hand if cucumbers are among your vegetables!
