Cucumbers

Cucumbers: Main Image

Best to Buy

Choose firm cucumbers with smooth, bright skins and no signs of shriveling or soft spots. Refrigerate in a plastic bag with holes poked in it for up to five days.

Prep & Store

Wash just before using. Don’t waste time peeling unless the cucumber is waxed. For more flavor, score the skin with a fork before slicing. Remove the seeds from large cucumbers since the seeds become bitter over time.

Tasty Tip

Add cucumbers to any tossed salad, or combine slices with thinly sliced red onion, fat-free yogurt, and fresh dill.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Whip up fresh pickles for your next picnic or barbecue: Slice pickles and combine with water, vinegar, and a little salt.
