These cucumbers have been following me. A friend of mine posted a version on Instagram, which started my internal obsession, while another friend has been giving me the weekly heads up about mini cukes at our local Farmer’s market. I guess we all need some cooling down (one of cucumber’s finer talents).
One of my fave foodie mags, Bon Appétit is also on the cucumber train. They had a version of these cucumbers in a recent issue that caught my eye and got me excited. I love it when people are bold enough to colour outside the lines and throw caution to the wind (even if it’s in a safe, food-related way). Any time you can trade in fancy knife skills for the side of your rolling pin and call it fancy, I am SO in.
