10 Refreshing Cucumber Recipes for Summer

Pull up a chair because it’s time again for my annual whining about daylight savings time. For real, why do we have to do this?? The days already naturally get longer in the summer. Do we really need to muck with the clocks and mess up schedules so it can be light until well past kids’ bedtimes? Who needs to be outside playing at 8:30pm?! I think they know better in Arizona and don’t do daylight savings time. I love you, Arizona, but I can’t deal with the heat, so I’ll have to stay in San Francisco and just whine about it.

Since apparently people are ready for longer days and warmer weather, let’s talk about a summer crop: Cucumber. I know it’s March, but unless you only shop at farmer’s markets, cucumbers are a vegetable (or is it a fruit?) that you can always find at the store year round. The reason I’m writing about it today is because next week is St. Patrick’s Day. I feel compelled to do something festive even though I’m not really that into the holiday. Cucumbers are green, so let’s call this a St. Paddy’s Day roundup, shall we?

Okay, so I’ll admit that there is something I like about DST – more time to take photos of food in the evening! #foodbloggerproblems ;)

I’m actually more than ready for the freshness of cucumbers, and each of these recipes is looking really good. Thanks for including my margarita!

I think most people like DST. It is nice to get extra photo time in the afternoon/evening, so I’ll keep that bright side in mind! Your margarita looks so good. I have to try it!

What an AWESOME roundup! I did my entire garden in cucumbers last year, and pickled them ALL. I LOVE homemade pickles. This year maybe I’ll do some eating cucumbers too.

Did you eat all those pickles or give them away? That’s a lot of pickles!!

Maybe I should try growing my own cucumbers this year. All you gardeners are inspiring me. Thanks, Julie!
