It’s tradition. We always make my grandma’s cucumber salad with the first delivery of this cool crisp fruit. Later, we’ll resort to pickles. For now, we’ll crunch away on our favorite sweet and tangy salad.
Deliciously light and fresh, crunchy cucumbers combined with creamy cream cheese and fresh herbs, this spread is a go-to summertime favorite.
Celebrate summer with this refreshing watermelon and cucumber salad. This week’s watermelon is yellow, dense and delicious (but definitely not seedless). A real treat on these last few hot August days!
A light and refreshing soup for a hot summer evening, the variation on this Mediterranean classic (roasting the tomatoes) really brings out a more intense tomato flavor. Vine ripened romas or san marzanos work best.
This beautiful and refreshing salad is the perfect combination of fresh and light, sweet and savory. It’s summer in a bowl!
This vibrant summer salad is great with ultra-fresh beans and vine ripened tomatoes. Like a Niçoise but without the tuna, the hummus toast and vegan tonnato create an epic salad experience.
Fresh lime juice and soy sauce-infused broccoli combined with crunchy cucumbers and rich mushrooms make these nice and saucy soba noodles better than takeout.
Cucumbers acquire a superb velvety texture when sautéed and puréed. The mild cucumber flavor is greatly enhanced with a generous grind of black or white pepper.
Packed with protein, fiber, and flavor, this salad is fantastic served when the farro is still warm, and packs nicely for lunch on the go. This chewy, nutty whole grain pairs nicely with rich tahini and salty olives.
