fresh dill (lots)
S&P (more salt than you'd think--I use Kosher)

You could freeze this, but it is always gone before we think of that. It keeps 2-3 days in the fridge.
I do a very slightly different Danish cucumber salad and it lasts for weeks in the fridge (Stirling doesn't like cucumber). It can be canned.

Freezing might make them limp & watery. You might try sliciing them in half lengthwise, & removing the seeds first.

How about (jarred) Gazpacho?

Canning Recipes - BallŪ Canning and Preserving Recipes

Maybe cucumber soup, but add any dairy (milk, yogurt, sour cream) after the soup is defrosted.

I make cucumber lemonade ice lollies for my kids. Juice the whole cucumbers and mix with an equal amount of homemade lemonade. Freeze and enjoy! They also taste great when made with apple juice instead of the lemonade.

I wanted to make the Thai recipe, but when I went to the health food store today, they were out of cucumbers.
