Don’t know about you, but cucumbers are one of my favorite vegetables.

pickling cucumbersThis year, our harvest was plentiful. Unfortunately, we only have three more left from our plants.

If you’re wondering what we’re doing with our last 3 cucumbers of the season, then read on, for these 3 Unique Recipes for Cucumbers may just be that something different you’ve been looking for.

Sauteed Cucumbers:

I love cucumbers raw, but did you know that you can cook them up and they’re tasty that way too? Sure enough…

Enjoy them as a warm side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1-2 tsp butter
  • salt & pepper

Instructions:

  1. In a frying pan, heat butter and sautee cucumbers on medium heat until fork tender.
  2. Season with salt & pepper, to taste.

Serve alongside fish, seafood or chicken, and foods of a spicy nature, such as South Asian dishes, for a great combination.

Cottage Cucumber Salad:

Also, in our family, we are quite fond of sour cream, and this recipe combines cucumber with the tang of sour cream.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 6 oz cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp scallions – chopped
  • 1 tsp parsley – chopped
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • salt & pepper – to taste

Instructions:

  1. Partially peel, one strip, leaving a strip of skin, peeling a strip, and so on.
  2. Slice cucumbers into medallions.
  3. Mix cottage cheese & sour cream with scallions and 3/4 of the cucumber slices.
  4. Pile in the center of a serving bowl.
  5. Use the rest of the cucumber slices to arrange around the edge of the bowl.
  6. Season salad with cayenne pepper, salt & pepper, to taste, and sprinkle chopped parsley over top.

A very beautiful presentation, and it tastes so good.

Cucumber & Nasturtium Salad:

Kimberly made this gorgeous cucumber & nasturtium salad with the gorgeous flowers of the plant.

Our harvest of nasturtium this year was phenomenal, and we’ve been having a lot of fun cooking with the different parts of the plant. Simply stunning & ever so tasty.

You’ll love this one, and it’s just so exquisite to look at.
