We have an abundance of cucumbers this year. Not sure what Tom was thinking when he started so many plants last spring. I have been eating them every day in my salad for lunch. I have been making cucumber infused water, more pickles then I could every possibly eat and even made a facial with some (which made a big mess). We have been selling them in the farm stand and feeding them to the chickens, but we are still overwhelmed with them. So I googled around trying to find something else to do with them. I found a recipe for a cucumber cocktail.
Most of the cocktail recipes I found only use a slice or two of cucumber, but this one used quite a bit. And it is actually tasty too.
Then I found a recipe for Cucumber and Smoked Salmon Sandwiches. It is on Martha Stewart’s site (not somewhere I usually go). So I made them for a snack today, with some modifications.
They were good. Not very flavorful unless you got a piece of jalapeno, but they are certainly different then the endless salads I have been eating. So I manage to consume several cucumbers today. We will see how many grew today while I was using these ones. Tomorrow I have plans for a large greek salad.
