Driving home from the mall yesterday I spotted a pop up farmers stand by the side of the road. I stopped and the guy offered me a killer deal on all his remaining cucumbers because the weather was about to take a turn for the worse and he wanted to go home. I ended up with about 30 pounds of cucumbers for just under ten dollars, a total steal.
When I got home and got them all washed I was bit intimidated about how many cucumbers were on my kitchen counter. Don’t get me wrong, I love cucumbers but what in the world was I going to do with so many. I sat down and searched online and found so many different things I could do with them. Here are some of my favorites.
