Cucumbers are related to watermelon, and are frequently used in salads, adding an interesting texture.

Store

Store in the warmest place in the fridge and use promptly. Cooler times of the year they can be stored on the bench.

How to prepare

Young cucumbers have a mild and tender skin and it is unnecessary to peel them. Telegraph, Lebanese and cocktail cucumbers never need to be peeled. European recipe books may advocate peeling and removing the seeds, but this is not normally necessary.

Ways to eat

Cucumbers are most popular raw as a salad vegetable. Slices of raw cucumber can be used like crackers when serving nibbles with drinks. Cucumbers can also be used in cold soup.

Nutrition

Lebanese cucumbers provide almost twice the amount of vitamin C and vitamin A compared to other varieties. Peeling cucumbers reduces the dietary fibre content slightly. Cucumbers have a high water content.
