“I love these cucumbers. This recipe comes from 'A Spoonful of Ginger' by Nina Simonds who says that cucumbers eaten during the summer dissipate heat. They also are considered to have diuretic and laxative effects. I can't really attest to all that but I can tell you that these slices are really tasty.”

Directions

  1. Trim the ends of the cucumbers and slice them lengthwise in half, then run the tines of a fork several times down the length to creat a slight decoration on the skin.
  2. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon and cut the cucumber halves into 3-inch sections; cut the sections, along the length, into almost paper thin slices and place in a bowl.
  3. Mix the remaining ingredients; add to the cucumbers and toss lightly to coat the slices.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes; serve cold.
