Get Creative with Cucumbers

Cucumbers are a delightful product of summer but must be chosen wisely. If the weather has been hot and dry, some cucumber varieties can become bitter. When in doubt, taste a cucumber before using it in one of our delicious, light recipes. (See our Guide to Cucumbers.)

First up is our Cucumber Gazpacho with Shrimp Relish. Chilled cucumber gazpacho is so refreshing in the heat of summer. We recommend English cucumbers because they have fewer seeds and thin skin that doesn’t require peeling. Blending them into a creamy summer soup is a breeze.
