You’ve come to the right place to find tasty cucumber recipes including drinks, salads, sandwiches, and more!
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?
I actually did make a green drinks recipe roundup for St. Patrick’s Day last year, so mosey on over if you’d like to see it!
Gah, I love cucumber so so much. I could probably eat it every day. Great roundup for sure!
Thank you, Kelley!

Love a good cucumber, or as my dad calls them, cukes ha! Great roundup, Andi!
Thanks, Jen! I’ll think of your dad now when I buys my cukes ;)

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!
I didn’t know you could make so many delicious drinks using cucumbers!
Ooh yes, cucumbers are great in drinks! They add a distinctive fresh flavor that I love.

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!!
Julie @ Tastes of Lizzy T says
I’m definitely remembering this roundup for when I have an overabundance of cucumbers this summer! Thanks!!
Maybe I should try growing my own cucumbers this year. All you gardeners are inspiring me. Thanks, Julie!
Malia @ Small Town Girl says
Jackpot! Awesome! I grow tons of cucumbers in the summer and am always looking for new recipes to curb the explosion. Pinned!
Thanks so much, Malia!

I had to come over and thank you personally, Andi! All these recipes sound great and now that the weather is warming up, I cannot wait to bring out some light recipes :)
Glad you like this one, Kacey! Of course I had to include you :) xo
