I have a ton of cucumbers!
What to do..what to do?
I had an app last night that was pretty bad but I like the concept...peel and thickly cut cuke slices, scoop out the middle and stuff with whatever, kind of filling you've in the mood for. The ones I had last night were stuffed with vegetable ceviche but they had absolutely no flavor except for the hint of cilantro right at the end...
I also love cuke sandwiches on white bread with salt and mayo....
With cukes in season, we have been buying the little pickling cucumbers. I think these have great texture and flavor. Any hoo, it's been part of our morning breakfast recently. I cube up the cukes along with some diced tomatoes or quartered grape tomatoes, diced red or yellow peppers, cubed good feta, diced cured olives, a sprinkle of oregano, a squeeze of lemon and a dash of good evoo. Makes one refreshing way to start the day.
Thai Cucumber Salad. Here's a link to one from this site:
Cucumber & onion salad in sour cream or yogurt with sweet and sour dressing.
Cucumber & Onion dip with Ruffles!
Slice some and place them in a jar of pickle juice from your fridge. Add chiles or red pepper flakes if you like. In a couple of days you'll have a tasty snack.

I once made something in the neighborhood of kimchi using cucumbers. It turned out to be VERY spicy, but good.
eta: Squeeze lots of lime over them, sprinkle on some salt, and enjoy. We tend to eat that lot because it's so quick and we often have limes lately. Refreshing.
