COLD CUCUMBER SOUP WITH YOGURT & DILL
Perfect for a hot summer day, this cold and creamy soup is packed with herbs.
CUCUMBER AND PEACH SALAD WITH HERBS
Not into pickles? Here’s another great idea for using up your cucumbers. The peaches are perfection right now and they’re amazing paired with cukes and herbs in this summery salad.
CUCUMBER DILL SALAD WITH LEMON VINAIGRETTE
Lemon and dill are the perfect match in this light spring salad. If you have radishes left over from last week, toss them in! Pea tendrils and microgreens would also work in here.
DANISH PICKLED CUCUMBERS
This super easy summer salad is a Girotti family favorite that my kids can make all by themselves. Keep it in your file in case we get inundated with cucumbers later in the season too. 😉
REFRIGERATOR PICKLES WITH CARROTS, CUKES, YOU NAME IT!
OK – I’ve been holding out on this one, but I think it’s time. This is my favorite “use up my share” recipe. It works great for the veggies listed but you can also include green beans, scallions, radishes, zucchini, onions, peppers, asparagus. The options are endless. I usually do at least a triple batch at a time and the kids LOVE to make them. They help cut up the veggies and then they build mini jungles in the jars. The tall veggies are the different trees, the garlic is birds, the seeds and spices are the leaves and (I hesitate to include this part but it’s adds significantly to their amusement level) the cauliflower is bird poop. LOL. To finish it off, we flood the jungle with the salty tsunami brine. It’s good clean fun. These pickles are not shelf-stable but will keep in your fridge for about 3 months.
SOUR CREAM AND DILL CUCUMBER SALAD
Kind of like a potato salad but with cucumbers!
