A lot of my gardening friends find themselves overwhelmed with summer squash but I manage to eat all the zucchini and calabacitas that come my way. For me, the bounty problem comes to a head with cucumbers. I like a nice cucumber salad but it would be all I eat if I used every last cucumber that comes my way.
Here's a refreshing twist that will remind you a bit of a watermelon agua fresca. Peel cucumbers and add them to a blender with some sugar and lime. Fill with water and blend well. Adjust the flavor by adding a little more water if you need to. It's that easy and one less cucumber goes to the compost pile!
