Nothing says summer like a crisp, cool cucumber and I’ve been lining up cucumber recipe ideas for the abundance of hydrating veggies coming my way. I pulled a variety of picks ranging from soups to appetizers, to salads and sandwiches. These are my favorites that I hope to use as inspiration in the upcoming weeks:
Cucumber Avocado Basil Mint Gazpacho from Self Proclaimed Foodie
I’m constantly obsessed with cucumber soups, and this summer version of Gazpacho includes avocado (my recent addiction) for a creamy texture–and of course, nutrient boost.
Tomato, Cucumber, Avocado Salad from Green Valley Kitchen
Tomato and cucumber are a classic summer combo.
Tuna in Cucumber Cups from Tastes Lovely
Super cute and satisfying appetizer.
Cucumber Avocado Rolls from It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken
Love the roll up idea to add to the presentation of this one!
Lemony Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwiches from Chew Out Loud
I could not stop looking at these refreshing sandwiches. They look just perfect for a picnic lunch!
Cucumber and Dill Summer Salad from The Simply Anchored Blog
I love the simplicity of this salad, with greek yogurt added as a ‘dressing’.
