Cold cucumber soup, tzatziki or a refreshing replacement for lemons or limes in water. Believe it or not, cucumbers really are good for more than just salad! They are great in salad, for sure, but when you’re looking to add a little bit of a refreshing boost to a sandwhich or make your own homemade ranch dressing, they’re ready to do their part! And you can’t forget pickles! The signature crunch in a good pickle starts (where else?) with a great cucumber! Cucumbers are also low in fat, sodium and calories.
