Quick & Easy Cucumber Salad Recipe

If your garden has been anything like mine then you must be overwhelmed with cucumbers by now. Nary a day has gone by where I haven’t harvested a new cuc this growing season. If you haven’t had the pleasure of growing your own cucumbers then give it a try next year. Cucumbers are one of the easiest & most rewarding vegetables to grow. Here is one of our favorite ways to prepare cucumbers.
