Looking for something refreshing to eat and easy to make on these hot, humid days? Versatile and healthy, Cucumber Salad makes a terrific snack, appetizer, or side dish. You can eat it with tortilla chips, on top of tacos, or all on its own as a salad. Simply chop, chill & serve.

When shopping, select cucumbers that are slender, firm, and dark green, avoiding those that are withered & shriveled. Store fresh, unpeeled cucumbers in the refrigerator in the crisper or a plastic bag for up to 1 week. Peeled cucumbers should be wrapped in plastic, refrigerated, and used within two days.
