Cucumbers are one of our favorite summertime vegetables because they are so incredibly versatile. They are great in salads, on sandwiches, in drinks, and can even be used to make deliciously crunchy pickles.
Cucumbers sometimes get a bad rap for not having a lot of flavor, but truthfully, their lightness is one of the things we love about them! That hint of flavor pairs beautifully with so many other ingredients, like yogurt, crab, onion, melon, mint, and more.
Oh, and did you know that cucumbers are about 96% water? That means this refreshing veggie can help you stay hydrated this summer, which will keep you as cool as, well, a cucumber!
