We have three cucumbers now. Lemon Armenian and Persian. We will have all of them for a few months more. You will eventually see and eat all of them more than once.
Here is a simple recipe with any of these fresh cucumbers
chop up cucumbers in cubes
chop up some onion “red will work great”
put in some chopped kalamata olives if you like them
add crumbled feta
add olive oil
a dash of red vinegar or your own herbed vinegar
sprinkle in some fresh thyme, oregano or tarragon or anything you like. Basil is great too.
This recipe gets better when the little sun gold cherry tomatoes start ripening. They are not yet”. You can half them and throw them in and they go just perfect.
