Do you notice something special about these cucumber dishes?
Most of them have a Mediterranean bent! That's because cucumbers are a huge part of Middle Eastern cuisine. I grew up loving them!
So if you have cucumbers coming out of your ears this gardening season, or if you just have a hankering for the cool, crisp, and juicy fruit — try these 6 delicious dishes to make with cucumbers!
#1 — Mediterranean Cucumber-Tomato-Mint Salad
I make this a lot during the summer when both tomatoes and cucumbers are in season! There's just nothing like a cool salad on a summer evening. Find the recipe here!
#2 — Cucumber-Tomato Salad With Kefir Or Yogurt
#3 — Cucumber-Yogurt (Or Kefir) Salad
This is a staple at our house in the summer! It's a bit like eating a cold soup — so garlicky, salty, and tangy. Mmmm! Find the recipe here!
#4 — Quinoa Garden Salad With Cucumbers
Just dump all desired ingredients in a bowl with quinoa, and toss! This allows you to use everything your garden or farmers market produces. I always make sure to add a few cucumbers to the mix. 😉 Find the recipe here!
#5 — Cucumber Sandwiches
Using my sourdough pocket bread from the Sourdough eCourse, you can make delicious pitas with cucumbers! Load them up with your pick of hummus, kefir cheese, tomatoes, falafel, and/or tahini sauce! There's no way to go wrong.
#6 — Garlic-Dill Pickles
