Cucumber Salad TNT

I love cucumbers and am always looking for ways to fix them. Here is new one we just tried.
I took 3 English cukes peeled then sliced, you can seed them if you want. 2 stems of Oregano stems removed, added about 1/ 2 cup crumbled Feta and toasted 1/4 of a cup of pine nuts freshly ground black pepper. To this we made a dressing of 1 minced shallot in serving bowl,1/4 cup evoo,red wine vinegar, 1/4 tea kosher salt,Mix well and enjoy... Great in a sub roll no meat just veggies...

I love cucumbers, too. If you dislike them (because of sad salad bars), try the English and try the Japanese. Use good vinegar. And google the classic cucumber sandwich, a great summer lunch, if kades hasn't convince you.

This sounds really great! Can someone please tell me the differences in the variety of cucumbers?
I realize this is an old thread, but being new to this site, I'm browsing older threads as well as the newer ones, as I don't want to miss out on a great recipe. Thanks!

Thanks for the information. I never realized there were so many types of cucumbers. I love cucumbers! I will have to be on the lookout for different varieties.
