The cucumber is a crop in the cucurbit (gourd) family. It is a popular food in many countries and a popular staple in many family meals.
Whether it’s a finger sandwich or a tea sandwich, cucumbers make a wonderful addition to picnics or parties.
Cucumber salad is a fresh, crisp way to get all the nutrients from cucumbers.
Fresh cucumbers can also be turned into some great sauces- their fresh taste and water content added to something creamy like sour cream or yogurt makes a fabulous dip or dressing!
