I don't have a specific recipe for this but you may enjoy Kim Chee Cucumbers. Tons of recipes on the web for that. Yummy and spicey! The third pic pacanis posted may be Kim Chee Cuc's. It looks similar to that.

I seem to be having a hard time finding the salmon recipe. I even looked here at DC, where I'm sure I posted the link, but here's what it's called: Vietnamese Salmon Rice Bowl with Ginger-Lime SauceSteamed white rice topped with fingers of Vietnamese, pan-roasted salmon and thinly sliced Kirby cucumbers dressed with a fresh ginger infused lime sauce
I'm sure I have the recipe printed out in my pile 'o recipes. I made it for PPPC I a few years ago when Cleveland Played Seattle.

ISO more ways to use cucumbers

I wonder if that veggie pasta/ribbony cutter thing that some folks here have used for zucchini would work, using cukes instead of pasta or zukes.

I have a mandoline - I could try the "pasta" idea. Thanks.

And pac - thanks for those recipes.

I like mine with rice wine vinegar and a little balsamic vinegar.

Cukes are also good in gazpacho.

I'm sooo jealous of your picture from your garden GG. Those are the only kind of cucumbers I'll eat and they are so expensive in the grocery all wrapped in shrink wrap.

We slice them paper thin on the mandolin along with white onion and and dress them (after they've been salted and drained in a colander) with rice wine vinegar, sugar, white pepper and just a little mayo.

Cucumbers in Sour Cream

1 Ea Cucumber
1 tsp Salt
C Sour Cream
4 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
1-2 Drops Tabasco Sauce
2 Tb Chives - Snipped
tsp Dried Dill Weed
Pinch White Pepper

Slice the cucumber into very thin slices. Sprinkle with the salt and let stand for 30 minutes at room temperature to release excess water from the cucumbers. Drain. Squeeze out excess water.

Combine the remaining ingredients and toss with the cucumbers.

Chill for 30 minutes

The spirooli works on cucumbers. Makes an interesting twist (pun intended) when adding cukes to salads or stir fries.
